Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) employees are collecting donations of socks and blankets for adults, unwrapped toys for children, and canned food during the annual “Stuff a Bus” campaign to help nursing homes and area families.
Help DART stuff a bus at the Mockingbird Station parking lot, 5465 E. Mockingbird Lane, Friday, Dec. 6, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Cityplace/Uptown Station, 2711 N. Haskell Ave., Wednesday, December 11, from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A 40-foot long DART bus will be used to collect donations in support of two DART-employee initiated campaigns, “Comforting of the Souls” and “Santa Cops.” The Northwest Bus Division’s “Comforting of the Souls” donates the new socks and blankets to area nursing homes while toys and food help families in need through the “Santa Cops” of the DART Police Department.
KKDA-FM “K-104” and KRNB “Smooth R&B 105.7” radio stations are sponsors of DART’s “Stuff a Bus” campaign and will be doing live broadcasts this year at the Mockingbird Station event. Other “Stuff a Bus” sponsors include Telemundo 39, El Hispano News and The Dallas Weekly.
