Stuff The Bus

KRCR News Channel 7, your local Ford Dealers, and the Salvation Army are collecting non-perishable food items for our Stuff the Bus food drive. Stuff the Bus helps to provide food to hundreds of families in need in your community.

On May 20, KRCR News Channel 7 and your local Ford Dealers will fill two city buses with canned food to support your local Salvation Army. Special thanks to B-Line and RABA transit systems for providing time, effort and their buses!

We are looking for local businesses, organizations, and schools to put up donation barrels and gather canned food. If your organization wants to participate, call your local Salvation Army (phone numbers listed below) and ask them to deliver a barrel to your location, and then let them know to add you to our online map of donation locations.
