Reno, Nevada (May 31, 2016) — The City of Reno, Washoe County Senior Services, and Regional Transportation Commission (RTC)’s Stuff-a-Bus donation drive concludes today, Tuesday, May 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. The community is invited to drop off donations of new items to help fill a 40-foot RTC electric bus in front of Greater Nevada Field on Evans Ave.
People who donate at that time will receive a buy-one-get-one ticket for a Reno Aces game valid for a Monday-Thursday home game from today through June 7.
Event organizers are hoping to beat last May’s Stuff-a-Bus collection numbers, including 130 bags of clothing, 213 separate items (heating and circulation fans, canes, gift cards, bus passes, etc.), and financial donations totaling $2,692.
New, unused items seniors need now include: slippers, lightweight sweaters, jackets, pajamas, personal hygiene items (soap, toothbrushes, denture cleansers), bath towels, washcloths, small fans, adult diapers, and grocery and pharmacy gift cards. Checks made payable to Washoe County Senior Services will also be accepted. For a complete list of items, visit Reno.gov/SeniorGiving.
Donated items will be delivered to Washoe County Senior Services and distributed to seniors in need.
The Stuff-a-Bus donation drive would not be possible without the help of local sponsors, including Chase International, Senior Care Plus/Hometown Health, Circus Circus, NV Energy, Plato’s Closet, Clothes Mentor, Lili’s Restaurant, The Continuum, Sanford Center for Aging, The Wedding Library, The Little Thrift Shop, Saint Thomas.
