DART First State’s 12th Annual “Stuff The Bus” Food Drive Nets 14.6 Tons of Food For Less Fortunate Delawareans
This year’s donations of non-perishable food filled three 30-foot buses. Donations were received from the general public, as well as businesses, schools, organizations, and state agencies throughout the entire State. The Pepsi Bottling Group made a very generous donation that helped set a new record. The second best year was 2004 with 11.1 tons.
Again this year, DART partnered with WAFL 97.7 FM and WNCL 101.3 FM, which are part of the Delmarva Broadcasting Company. Thanks to staff and listeners of both radio stations, Stuff the Bus in Milford and Dover was a great success.
