Stuff the Bus to Refill the Community Food Bank

Tucson, AZ (January 3, 2018) – While the holiday season tends to bring much needed attention to neighbors lacking basic necessities―like food for the family holiday table―it can be easy to forget in the hustle and bustle of a new year that hunger continues for some beyond the season of giving. That’s why the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is teaming up with HSL Properties, KGUN 9 News, and Sun Tran for a Stuff the Bus food drive event on Friday, January 12. A Sun Tran bus will be parked at Canyon Oaks Apartments, 600 N. Pantano Rd. (Pantano Road and 5th Street), from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to accept donations supporting the fight against hunger in the Tucson area. With KGUN 9 broadcasting live during the event, organizers hope to not only match, but to exceed the 30,000 pounds of food collected last year.

Help HSL Properties Stuff the Bus

On January 13, HSL Properties, partnering with Sun Tran and KGUN 9 News, will again be sponsoring a Stuff the Bus food drive, to benefit the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. The public is welcome to bring donations of non-perishable food or cash, at River Oaks Apartments, 7730 E. Broadway, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
