2nd Annual Stuff a Bus

In the spirit of holiday giving, help RIPTA, Panera Bread, Coast 93.3 and B101 “Stuff a Bus!”  Our goal is to stuff a RIPTA bus chock full of non-perishable food and canned good items that will be donated the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.    Each person who donates will receive a special surprise from Panera Bread.  Give back this holiday season.   Join us at Panera Bread on the following dates:


Saturday, November 16 from 11a-1p

1000 Division Street, East Greenwich

Saturday, November 23 from 1p-3p

1000 Bald Hill Road, Warwick

Saturday, November 30 from 10a-12

160 Old Tower Hill Road, Wakefield

Saturday, December 7 from 12p-2p

George Washington Highway, Lincoln

At last year’s Stuff a Bus Food Drive, RIPTA collected 2,993 pounds of food and $1,392 in donations. Every dollar enables the Rhode Island Community Food Bank to acquire 3 pounds of healthy food. So in total, the 2012 food drive resulted in 7,169 pounds of food for Rhode Islanders in need. Thank you to everyone who helped!  Let’s beat that number this year!
