Reno, Nev. May 7, 2018. Local government and not-for-profit agencies are partnering for Stuff A Bus Drive By Donation Drive aimed at helping give community donations to northern Nevada seniors in need.
The northern Nevada community is being called upon to drop off new, unused items that will be loaded onto a Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) bus in front of Greater Nevada Field on Friday, May 11, 2018, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Only NEW, unused items are being accepted. Needed items include: jackets, fans, coats, sweatpants, toiletries, adult diapers, grocery store or pet store gift cards, and transit passes.
