Peoria Rivermen to Collect Stuff-A-Bus Donations at Game on Nov. 18
The Peoria Rivermen are hosting a Stuff-A-Bus night at their upcoming game on Saturday, November 18 against the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs. Fans who bring a donation of non-perishable food to the game will receive a raffle ticket to win a signed authentic PEANUTS Charlie Brown jersey. Two jerseys will be auctioned off during the 3rd period of the game. One raffle ticket will be handed out per donated item – i.e. one fan can bring five items and receive five raffle tickets. Cash donations of $1 per raffle ticket will also be accepted for the purchase of additional food.
The game jerseys worn by the players on the ice will be auctioned off following Saturday’s game from ice level, with a portion of the net proceeds benefiting Stuff-A-Bus. The game time is at 7:15 p.m. at the Peoria Civic Center (201 SW Jefferson Ave.), and the doors open at 6:15 p.m. For ticket information, please visit www.rivermen.net or call 309-676-1040.
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 began on October 20, and it will conclude on 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.
