San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) will hold its 18th Annual Stuff the Bus food drive starting on Friday, November 18. RTD will once again lead a countywide effort, this year joined by transit providers in Manteca, Lodi, and Escalon. These agencies, along with RTD, will hold simultaneous food drives modeled on RTD’s annual event in each city using their vehicles, staff, and volunteers to collect food for a nonprofit agency in their communities. RTD is coordinating overall marketing and promotion efforts for this unified event. The food collected in this year’s campaign will go toward feeding thousands of San Joaquin County residents this holiday season. In addition to the food drive, RTD will also be collecting gently used coats.
To promote this year’s event, RTD will collaborate with the Stockton Record, and radio station KWIN/KWNN (97.7/98.3).
