Stuff the Yellow Bus is Back!
10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Daily
Where: S.E. Corner of Ina Rd. and Oracle Rd, in the Bank of America parking lot
Stuff the Yellow Bus is a neighborhood holiday donation drop-off site. Volunteers are collecting books, toys, clothing and food for children and families in need this holiday season. The concept is to make it easy for people to drive by and drop off. They don’t even need to get out of their vehicles!
An Amphitheater School District bus can hold a lot of donations, so we encourage people to stop by the site when they are out holiday shopping this month.
Recipients are The Amphitheater Foundation – Interfaith Community Services – United Cerebral Palsy of Southern Arizona – Intermountain Centers for Human Development – Jewish Family and Children’s Services.
Stuff the Yellow Bus is all about individuals, organizations and businesses coming together to create a central donation drop off location for residents living especially on the Northwest, North and Far North parts of Pima County.
