Eastern Sierra Transit Authority is seeking charitable people who care about the communities in the Eastern Sierra to help “Stuff-A-Bus” with non-perishable food items to support the Salvation Army food pantry.
Food collected during the Stuff-A-Bus campaign will be distributed to families in need this holiday season.
ESTA currently has donation boxes on each bus in the Bishop, Lone Pine and Mammoth areas to collect non-perishable food items from riders and has teamed up with KIBS/KBOV for a live remote broadcast from the Kmart parking lot today from 1-3 p.m.
“It will be challenging to top last year’s Stuff-A-Bus Food Drive where an awe-inspiring 850 pounds of food was collected for the Salvation Army Cup of Cold Water Food Pantry,” a press release from ESTA states.
The Stuff-A-Bus Food Drive is the main source of food for the Salvation Army’s Christmas Food Baskets.
The fifth annual event began in November and will continue through Dec. 9.
ESTA is inviting the community to head over to the Kmart parking lot today after the Bishop Christmas parade with donations for the Stuff-A-Bus event.
Also, ESTA has volunteered to pick up any donations from groups and employers who wish to donate to the drive.
To schedule a pick-up or for more information, call (760) 872-1901.
