Help the Jaycees Stuff the Bus!
Donations being accepted to help provide Christmas to 40 local children
LANSING — In order to provide Christmas to 40 local children and their families, members of the Lansing Jaycees plan to stuff a bus full of clothes and toys next Saturday with support from the greater Lansing community. “Stuff the Bus” will take place Saturday, Dec. 1 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wal-Mart at Eastwood Towne Center, located at 3225 Towne Centre Blvd. in Lansing. "Stuff the Bus is a great way to give back to the Lansing community,” said Danielle Wellington, Membership Vice President and event chair. “Donating toys clothes or household items to help provide a Lansing child with Christmas is a great way to share the true meaning of the holiday.”
Stuff the Bus is an annual Jaycees event that provides local shoppers with the opportunity to help stuff a CATA bus with clothes, coats, necessities and toys to benefit local children and their families through the Salvation Army’s “Adopt-A-Family” program.
“Stuff the Bus is one of my favorite events of the year,” said Lansing Jaycees 84th President Lauren Leeds. “The outpouring of support we receive from the greater Lansing community is heartwarming. I encourage anyone who wants to help lift the holiday spirits of local children and their families to participate.”
