SunLine Transit Agency is holding its 8th annual holiday food drive on Thursday, November 6 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Fill the Bus Food Drive helps feed the homeless and families in need during the holiday season. It’s easy to join in the effort by bringing in a few items from your pantry or by heading to the grocery store.
This year’s event will benefit The Narrow Door and Roy’s Desert Resource Center. The two organizations are supported by the generosity of Coachella Valley residents and all donations will be delivered to their facilities early Friday morning, according to organizers
SunLine will park three buses at different grocery stores in the Coachella Valley and the company hopes to break it’s previous record of 14 tons of donated food. SunLine invites the community to help Fill the Bus with non-perishable food items, frozen meats and other assorted trimmings for holiday meals. Organizers are also asking residents to donate new packaged toiletries, personal hygiene products, diapers and other household products.
