EVERETT – The annual Stuff a Bus giving drive, benefitting local families supported by Volunteers of America Western Washington (VOAWW), provides another opportunity this year to bring joy in our community.

Initiated by the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 883, in partnership with VOAWW, Fred Meyer and Everett Transit, the campaign is now in its second year of extending its reach to a new Snohomish location, supported by Community Transit and ATU Local 1576.

Campaign dates: Nov. 25-26, Dec. 2-3, 9-10

We will collect toys and non-perishable food items between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the two locations:

  • Fred Meyer, Everett (Murphy’s Corner), 12906 Bothell-Everett Hwy
  • Fred Meyer, Snohomish, 2801 Bickford Ave.

Last year, the community donated over 11,500 pounds of food and baby items, along with toys and cash donations. For more information, volunteer opportunities or direct donations, go to voaww.org.

Thank you for considering your neighbors-in-need in your shopping this year. Happy Holidays!
