TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Delawareans in need will benefit once again this Thanksgiving from DART First State’s 19th annual “Stuff The Bus” Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware. Beginning November 7th, sites across the state will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items for distribution before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Last year’s event filled two 30’ transit buses with more than nine tons of non-perishable food statewide.  Donations will be accepted at the following locations and times.

Monday, November 7, 8 AM – 6 PM
Walmart, 939 N. DuPont Highway, Milford
AND
Acme, North Dover Center, Dover

Wednesday, November 9, 8 AM – 5 PM
Acme, Fairfax Shopping Center, US Route 202, Wilmington

Thursday, November 10, 7 AM – 5 PM
Rodney Square, Market Street side, Wilmington

Friday, November 11, 7 AM – 1 PM
Rodney Square, Market Street side, Wilmington

Saturday, November 12, 9 AM – 3 PM         
Acme, Suburban Plaza, 100 Suburban Dr., Newark                     

image009At each collection site, DART First State will be available to help stuff the bus and will provide public transit and Food Bank information to visitors.  For “Stuff The Bus” 2016 information, visit www.DartFirstState.com, or call 1-800-652-DART.

You can help feed many people in need by donating nonperishable items, all of which will be donated to the Food Bank of Delaware.  Below is a listing of needed/suggested items:

Please note that the Food Bank cannot accept hard candy, lollipops, soda in cans and bottles, chocolate bars or pieces, gum and soft candy such as marshmallows, caramels, taffy, licorice and gummy items.

The Food Bank of Delaware not only collects nonperishable food items, but also other household products, such as laundry detergent, paper products, diapers, and personal care items.  Contact the Food Bank at 302-292-1305, or visit their website at www.FBD.org.
