Week one of Stuff-a-Bus is a big success!

We collected a lot of toys Friday, but we'll need everyone's help to collect even more next week.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Week One of WLTX's annual Stuff-a-Bus drive is in the books and it was a big success. But the work to give kids a wonderful Christmas isn't done just yet: the effort is continuing next week!

Once again, we asked everyone to deliver, and you did. Many of you showed just how generous you are by stopping by Walmart locations in Irmo, Manning, Forest Drive, Orangeburg, and Lexington to donate toys. Those items will go to families that need a little extra support from our community to make it a Merry Christmas for their kids. 

Most of the buses were filled with goods, and plenty of bikes were lined up outside. At our location on Dutch Fork Road, we even had to bring in a second bus! 

But as we said, there's more to do. Next week, we'll be out at a different group of Walmart stores next Friday. We want to do what we can to ensure hundreds of kids in the Midlands will wake up to a happy Christmas morning, and we need your help in making this happen!

Once again, we'll be collecting new, unwrapped toys and non-perishable packaged food December 13 at the following Walmart locations:

December 13th: 5 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.

  • Two Notch - 10060 Two Notch Road Columbia, SC 29223
  • Harbison - 360 Harbison Boulevard, Columbia, SC 29212 
  • Sumter – 1283 Broad St, Sumter, SC 29150 
  • Garners Ferry – 7520 Garners Ferry Rd, Columbia, SC 29209 

Come help us Stuff-a-Bus and make a Midlands family's Christmas!
