CityLink Offering Free Rides Nov. 6 & Nov. 13 on Fixed Route Buses
CityLink is offering free rides to passengers on CityLink fixed route buses with the donation of a non-perishable food item to benefit the 32nd Annual Stuff-A-Bus food drive on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 and again on November 13, 2019. One donation is required per ride.
For the past 32 years, CityLink has hosted the Stuff-A-Bus food drive to help eliminate hunger in Peoria. With a long partnership with Kroger to collect enough food to stuff a classic CityLink bus, the donations collected during the annual food drive benefit the food pantry at the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service. Since January of this year, the Peoria Friendship House food pantry has provided meals weekly to 40-50 families who are dealing with hunger in Peoria. The 2019 campaign will officially began on Thursday, October 24 and it will conclude on Tuesday, December 3. The goal this year is to collect 11 tons of food. Donations can be purchased or dropped off at all Kroger store locations in Peoria and East Peoria.
