Peoria Rivermen Players to Host Stuff-A-Bus Donation Collection Event on Oct. 22
The Peoria Rivermen players are planning to host a Stuff-A-Bus food donation collection event on Sunday, October 22, 2023 at the Kroger on Lindbergh (9219 Lindbergh Dr, Peoria) from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Fans can stop by the store between these hours to meet Peoria Rivermen players and help them collect donations for Stuff-A-Bus.

For the past 36 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. In a year, the Peoria Friendship House food pantry provides an average of 150,000 meals to those dealing with hunger in Peoria. The 2023 campaign begins on October 20, and it will conclude on Wednesday, November 29. The goal this year is to reach a new record and collect 13 tons of food. Donations can be purchased or dropped off at all Kroger store locations in Peoria and East Peoria.
