Stuff the Bus is this Saturday

Stuff the Bus for Kids!

Caring for Kids is holding its annual “Stuff the Bus” event at Clover Park High School and along Gravelly Lake Drive on Saturday, November 7th  from 9:00 A.M. – 3:00 P. M. We will be collecting new toys and cash donations for the Caring for Kids Holiday Fair in December. Rain or shine we will be out with volunteers from all the middle schools and high schools.

Caring for Kids helps over 2,000 kids in need in our community with clothing, gifts and food at the Fair. Even though the Holiday Fair is the focus, you can also drop off color books and crayons for the food bank distribution in December. Our goal is to collect 3,000 color books to be distributed at our local food bank, so all of our kids in need receive something for the holidays.  This will be the fifth year of the color book distribution. Questions email or Diane at 253-279-9777.

Caring for Kids is an all-volunteer organization, so please help us help kids!
