In partnership with Connect Transit, we are readying the 15th 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.
