Presented by Paul Davis Restoration, in partnership with Connect Transit, Amalgamated Transit Union, and Great Plains Media, we are readying the 16th 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.
|Dates & Locations (10 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily)|
|Monday, December 2||Walmart – Greenbriar Dr., Normal, IL|
|Tuesday, December 3||Walmart – 2225 W. Market St., Bloomington, IL|
|Wednesday, December 4||Kroger – 1550 E. College Ave., Normal, IL|

|Friday, December 6||Walmart – Greenbriar Dr., Normal, IL|

We rely on 180 volunteers throughout the week to help us stuff the bus! Volunteers will greet and thank shoppers, hand out flyers and arrange items in the bus. Six volunteers are needed for each two-hour time slot. Bring your family, friends and colleagues!
Your monetary donation will allow us to purchase items needed for the Crisis Nursery on your behalf.
Additional Drop-Off Options
If you are unable to make it to a Stuff the Bus location during operating hours, donations will be accepted at Children’s Home & Aid (403 S. State St., Bloomington, IL) or Connect Transit (351 Wylie Dr., Normal, IL).
