Athens Transit is "Stuffing a Bus"

Athens Transit is "Stuffing a Bus" for Christmas with unexpired canned foods and we can’t do it without your help! All canned foods will be donated to the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. Our decorated bus will be parked at the following locations, so come out and donate to help give Athens area families a Holiday Season to remember! Don’t forget each time you drop off canned items the attendant will provide you with a ticket to enter and win one of our “Stuff-A-Bus” prizes. You don’t have to be present to win!!! Drawing takes place December 15 at 5:00 p.m. at Wal-Mart on Lexington Road.
