"Stuff The Bus" makes its way to Rome
ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - NEWSChannel 2, along with radio stations from Roser Communications (KISS-FM, Bug Country, WUTQ), Birnie Bus, and Fidelis Care continued their Stuff The Bus effort Saturday in Rome.
The goal of the 5th annual Stuff The Bus campaign is to fill several buses and collect more than last year's total of 8,500 toys. The toys will be distributed in December by Catholic Charities, Kids Oneida-Herkimer, UCP and the Keys Program.
NEWSChannel 2 meteorologists Adam Musyt and Bill Kardas were also on hand Saturday to help load the bus full of toys.
You still have two more chances to help us help kids! The Birnie Bus will be set up to take toys next Saturday, December 10, 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Toys R Us in New Hartford.
Also on Saturday, December 10, from 6:00 to 8;00 p.m., the Teddy Bear Toss will take place at the Utica College hockey game at the Utica Memorial Auditorium.
You can also drop off toys at the Utica or Rome Birnie Bus locations during their normal business hours. In Utica, that's at 2245 Dwyer Avenue and in Rome, it's at 248 Otis Street, in the Griffiss Business Park.
