connect transit

Connect Transit is teaming up with multiple local businesses for its annual Stuff-the-Bus event, which will run from Nov. 30 through Dec. 5. 

The six-day event will help restock the Children’s Home & Aid and Crisis Nursery’s pantry for the next year, stocking them with supplies. Both are meant for the benefit and care of at-risk children and families in the Bloomington-Normal community.

Non-perishable food, new clothing, toys, diapers and other items meant for children aged infant to six years old are welcome.

Donations are accepted between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. during the six-day span, at one of these locations:

Monday, Nov. 30:  Walmart – Greenbriar Drive, Normal

Tuesday, Dec. 1:  Walmart – 2225 W. Market Street, Bloomington

Wednesday, Dec. 2:  Kroger – 1550 E. College Ave, Normal

Thursday, Dec. 3:  Kroger – 1550 E. College Ave, Normal

Friday, Dec. 4:  Walmart – Greenbriar Drive, Normal

Saturday, Dec. 5:  Walmart – 2225 W. Market Street, Bloomington

Donations are also welcome at the Children’s Home & Aid office in Bloomington, as well as the Connect Transit office in Bloomington.
