Area families and nursing homes benefit
DART to host "Stuff a Bus" events to help those in need
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) employees and customers will "Stuff a Bus" twice this holiday season by collecting donated unwrapped toys, canned food, socks and blankets at the Bachman Station parking lot 9739 Denton Dr., Friday Dec. 7, 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and the Mockingbird Station parking lot, 5465 E. Mockingbird Lane, Friday, Dec. 14, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A specially marked 40 foot long DART bus will be used to collect donations in support of two DART-employees initiated campaigns, "Comforting of the Souls" and "Santa Cops."
New adult socks and blankets will help DART Northwest Bus Division's "Comforting of the Souls" aimed at area nursing homes and the toys and food will assist DART Police "Santa Cops" as they provide meals and gifts for area families.
The Dallas Weekly, El Hispano News, Telemundo of Dallas, and stations KKDA-FM "K-104" and KNRB "Smooth R&B 105.7" are helping to sponsor the "Stuff a Bus" campaign.
