COLUMBIA, S.C. — Week 2 of WLTX's Stuff-a-Bus was a big success, and it's all thanks to you, as we worked together to make a child's Christmas brighter with a new toy under the tree!
We don't know exactly how many items were collected yet, but we do know multiple bus loads of toys and food were filled both last week and this week.
As you know, this year has been another challenging year for the Midlands and it means it's extremely important for the Midlands to come together as a community to lift up our neighbors. Many families are still struggling to provide for their families.
But WLTX partnered with the Salvation Army to collect unwrapped toys for both girls and boys that will be put under the Christmas tree.
Last year, we were able to help 8,000 families.
The way Stuff-a-Bus works, hence the name, is a COMET public transit bus is parked outside of several Walmart stores. Items donated are then placed inside those vehicles.
Friday we were at four locations: Harbison Boulevard near Irmo, Two Notch Road in Columbia, Garners Ferry Road in Columbia, and the Walmart store in Sumter.
As we have the past several years, the 2022 edition was a drive-thru setup. We’ll also make sure you never have to leave the safety of your vehicles.
Thank you for giving and thank you for making a difference!
