On Saturday, September 12, buses were parked at 21 locations throughout the county to collect nonperishable food donations for area nonprofits through the Stuff the Bus food drive. Over five hours, Fairfax County residents donated 11 tons of food to help feed hungry people throughout the county.
“We are so thankful for the generosity of our Fairfax County community. This is the second Stuff the Bus food drive held since the COVID-19 pandemic began and our residents continue to show up and give even during these uncertain times,” said Chris Leonard, Director of Neighborhood and Community Services.
For those who wish to donate to Stuff the Bus, another drive will be held on Saturday, September 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For donation locations, most requested items and how to donate safely, visit Stuff the Bus.
