Peoria Rivermen to Collect Stuff-A-Bus Donations at Games on Nov. 19 & 20
The Peoria Rivermen are hosting Stuff-A-Bus nights at their upcoming games against the Huntsville Havoc on Friday, November 19 and Saturday, November 20. 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. Three jerseys will be auctioned off at each respective game – one jersey per period. 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 actual game jerseys the players will wear on the ice both games will be auctioned off following Saturday’s game from ice level, with a portion of the net proceeds benefiting Stuff-A-Bus. Game times are at 7:15 p.m. both nights at the Peoria Civic Center (201 SW Jefferson Ave.), and the doors open at 6:15 p.m. each night. For ticket information, please visit www.rivermen.net or call 309-676-1040.
For the past 34 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 an average of 400 meals weekly to families who are dealing with hunger in Peoria. The 2021 campaign officially began on Friday, October 22, and it will conclude on Tuesday, November 30. The goal this year is to collect 10 tons of food. Donations can be purchased or dropped off at all Kroger store locations in Peoria and East Peoria.
