Suff-A-Bus 2021

22nd Stuff-A-Bus Anniversary

To mark the 22nd year anniversary of the Stuff-A-Bus, Bloomington Transit will partner with Hoosier Country 105.1, B97, and Indiana Department of Child Services to help make the holidays merrier for children and families in need in our community. Last year with the help of area stores and our generous community we were able to collect over 6,400 new toys, stuffed animals, new coats, hats and mittens for needy children and families in our community.

We have made some changes to Stuff-A-Bus to protect our community, volunteers, and coworkers. There will be a bin placed in the front of the door of the bus for contact-free donations. We have also created contact free shopping experiences through Amazon for those who want to purchase donations contact free. The Amazon link allows people to purchase items from a registry that we have set-up and will maintain throughout the Stuff-A-Bus event and those items will be sent directly to us via Amazon.

Bloomington Transit will unveil the festively decorated Stuff-A-Bus on December 1 at Target. The Stuff-A-Bus will visit a number of shopping centers and retail locations throughout Bloomington from December 1 through December 12. The goal is to literally “STUFF” the decorated Bloomington Transit bus completely full of donated unwrapped new toys, clothes, children’s coats, gloves, and mittens.
The donated items will be distributed to the Indiana Department of Child Services in Monroe County to make the holiday brighter for children in need in Monroe County.
Stuff-A-Bus is made possible, in part, by volunteers who staff the bus and accept donations. Without this assistance, Stuff-A-Bus would not be possible.
