TAVARES — The Lake County Public Transportation Division is hosting its annual Stuff the Bus campaign on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at area Walmart stores.
The goal of the annual food drive is to stuff a bus full of donated nonperishable food items, baby food and pet food. A Lake County Connection bus will be parked at the Walmart stores in Mount Dora at 17030 U.S. Highway 441 and in Leesburg at 2501 N. Citrus Blvd., with volunteers and County employees volunteering their time at each location.
“We had a great turn out the past few years, and are hoping the response is even better this year,” said Ken Harley, Public Transportation Division Manager. “The needs right now are so great in the community, and events like Stuff the Bus help area food banks provide much needed resources to Lake County families.”
The nonperishable food and supplies collected help support the Human Care Network in partnership with United Way of Lake & Sumter County.
