Stuff the Bus 2021
November 29 - December 4
Presented by Paul Davis Restoration, in partnership with Connect Transit, Amalgamated Transit Union, and Great Plains Media, we are readying the 19th Annual “Stuff the Bus” for the holidays. Help the Children’s Home & Aid Crisis Nursery make a difference in the lives of local babies and children in crisis.
Connect Transit will park a bus at various locations throughout Bloomington-Normal and challenge the community to “stuff the bus” full of items for the Crisis Nursery.
