Stuff A Bus returns

The 26th annual Stuff A Bus three-day event is back Nov. 12-14. This year the event will go on with The BUS and live radio broadcasts throughout,  with one notable change. The organizers from Catamount Radio will be collecting cash and checks, not food. Following Covid-19 safety protocols it was decided that collecting food would not meet the safety test. However, the three food shelves participating can purchase food locally and through the Vermont Food Bank in bulk with the monetary donations. Participating organizations include the BROC Community Food Shelf, the Rutland Community Cupboard and the Salvation Army. Buses will be parked at Price Chopper and Hannaford, with a WJJR Van at Tops Market in Rutland. BROC CEO Tom Donahue said, “this fundraising event is more important than ever before due to the pandemic.”

“Stuff A Bus is emblematic of holiday giving and kindness at this special time of year,” said Rutland Community Cupboard Executive Director Rebekah Stephens.
