Week 1 of Stuff-a-Bus is a success, Week 2 still to come

Week 1 of Stuff-a-Bus takes place Friday across the Midlands!

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Week 1 of WLTX's annual Stuff-a-Bus campaign is over, and we're already looking toward Week 2 that'll be coming soon.

We partnered with the Salvation Army at five Walmart locations in the Midlands: Forest Drive, Lexington, Orangeburg, Irmo, and Manning. With your help, we were able to collect hundreds of unwrapped toys for both girls and boys that can be put under the Christmas tree. We also took donations of canned food.

If you missed the first week, don't worry: we'll be out at four more locations on Friday, December 10. You can see that list below.

Why Stuff a Bus is Important

This year has been another challenging year for the Midlands, and it’s meaning it's extremely important for the Midlands to come together as a community to lift up our neighbors. 

Many families are still struggling, so this Christmas season, giving just means more. So let’s take back 2021 with love during the 2021 Stuff-a-Bus campaign as we collect toys for children. 

And for those of you who open your hearts to take part in Stuff-A-Bus this year, please know that your safety is our number one priority. The 2021 Christmas Drive-Thru Edition is ready for you! Our staff and volunteers will practice all CDC recommended safety procedures. We’ll also make sure you never have to leave the safety of your vehicles. Simply pull up and one of our volunteers will transfer your donations directly from your car to the bus. 

Thank you for giving and making a difference!
