Stuff the Bus Collects Food, Toys

EUGENE and SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — An LTD bus is starting to fill up with food and toy donations for local families in need this holiday season.

It’s all part of the annual Stuff the Bus campaign. The goal is to fill an entire bus with food items for Food For Lane County and toy donations for Toys for Tots.

People started packing the bus Friday morning outside the Walmart on Green Acres Road in Eugene.

“I think it’s so important because there’s so many people out there that just need a little extra for the holidays, just need a little extra help,” said Jennie Gergen, who donated food to the drive.

Right now the bus is parked outside the Walmart on Olympic Street in Springfield. It’ll be out there until 8 p.m. Friday.

On Saturday, the bus will start out at the Walmart grocery store on Gateway Street in Springfield, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will make it’s last stop at the Walmart on West 11th in Eugene.
