The deadline for local charities and non-profit organizations to apply for the annual Stuff the Bus CNY toy drive is Friday, Oct. 30.
Eligible applicants will receive toys that are collected throughout the Stuff the Bus campaign to distribute to local children and families in need.
"If a charity registers with us…they would just be able to receive a ton of toys to help out kids in their programs in their communities -- and all the toys stay here in Central New York…so you're helping kids here,” said DJ Roscoe Red of Kiss FM.
NEWSChannel 2 works with Roser Communications and other sponsors each year for the toy drive, bringing the bus to several locations and taking donations. Last year, 45,000 toys were collected throughout the holiday season.
Groups in Oneida, Herkimer, Madison, Otsego, Fulton and Montgomery counties are eligible to apply.
