More than 10 tons of food collected through annual Stuff-a-Bus event

Dec 07, 2017
Helping feed people this holiday season got a little easier when our location in Peoria, Illinois, partnered with other local agencies for the 30th Annual Stuff-a-Bus food drive. 

More than 10 tons of food were donated during the month-long campaign to benefit the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service, a non-profit organization that provides advocacy, coaching, education, food and shelter to families in the Peoria area.

“This event takes hard work and dedication from many of my employees and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local #416 members,” said General Manager Doug Roelfs. “This food drive would not have been a success without everyone’s time, donations and support. The donations are a true blessing to the families we serve in our community.”

This location manages the CityLink’s fixed-route public transportation services for the Greater Peoria Mass Transit District and transports more than three million passengers each year.
