HELP STAGECOACH STUFF-THE-BUS
When You Give Food You Give Hope
Randolph, Vermont….. On Saturday, September 3rd, Stagecoach will host its 2nd Annual Stuff-the-Bus event to raise awareness and collect donations for local food shelves. Stagecoach buses will be parked at Shaw’s in Randolph and Hannaford’s in Bradford from 10:00am to 7:00pm to collect donations of food, which will then be delivered to food shelves in Randolph, Bethel, Rochester, Bradford, Wells River and Fairlee. Last year, the Bradford area event collected more than 1,300 pounds of food items.
In this region, one out of every four people is at risk of stuck at home without access to transportation or food. Stagecoach leaders decided to create the Stuff the Bus event to further assist community members most in need. Community Relations Manager, Laura Perez said, “Many of our riders have limited incomes. While we are proud to help them by providing low-cost transportation, we recognized there were other ways we could help, too. Stuff the Bus is part of our effort to improve the health of the community by supporting our partners at the food shelves.”
Please join Stagecoach in making the community a safer, healthier, and happier place to live, play and work.
Ways to Help Stagecoach Stuff-the-Bus:
Organize a food drive at your organization and bring friends to load it on the bus

Volunteer to help distribute donations to the food shelves on Sunday 9/4
Volunteer to spread the word about the event- pass out flyers, post in church bulletin, talk to friends, post on Facebook
Have a “giving party”- instead of gifts, ask friends to bring a non-perishable food item to donate
