DART's Annual Holiday Stuff a Bus Event Returns December 14
With the holiday season just around the corner, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is reaching out to all DART riders to support the annual "Stuff a Bus" event scheduled for Friday, December 14. The initiative will deliver socks and blankets to area nursing facilities - as well as unwrapped toys and canned food for children and families in need throughout the North Texas area.
This year's event will take place on December 14 at Mockingbird Station (5465 E. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas) near the intersection of North Central Expressway and Mockingbird Lane from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Mockingbird Station is served by DART's Red, Blue and Orange lines.
KKDA-FM 'K-104' and 'Smooth R&B 105.7' KRNB-FM are co-sponsors of the event again this year and will be live broadcasting their morning shows from the event with a special appearance from Santa.
DART's "Stuff a Bus" is an annual campaign put on by DART bus operators and police officers. It combines two employee sponsored drives, Santa Cops and Comforting of the Souls, to fill a bus with donations. With a goal of helping 200 families this year, in 2017 the "Stuff a Bus" event provided 2,000 pairs of socks and 850 blankets to 27 nursing facilities.
