Police and bus operators to collect donations

DART makes plans to "Stuff a Bus" for charity

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) employees will hold their annual holiday "Stuff a Bus" campaign to assist people in need Friday, December 2.

Customers are invited to stuff a 40 foot long DART bus by donating unwrapped toys, canned food, socks and blankets at the Mockingbird Station parking lot, 5465 E. Mockingbird Lane, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. This effort supports two DART-employee initiated campaigns, Santa Cops and Comforting of the Souls. Look for a specially marked bus when making donations.


On Friday, December 2, 2011 DART Stuff a Bus and Comforting of the Souls was a huge success.

The toys and food will assist DART Police "Santa Cops" as they provide meals and gifts for area families. New adult socks and blankets will help DART Northwest Bus Division's "Comforting of the Souls" aimed at Dallas area nursing homes.

The Dallas Weekly, North Dallas Gazette, El Hispano News, AT&T, Telemundo of Dallas, and stations KKDA-FM "K-104" and KNRB "Smooth R&B 105.7" are helping to sponsor DART's "Stuff a Bus" campaign.
