Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville kids are on a mission to support community food pantries this holiday season by “Stuffing Da Bus” with needed goods.
Members of BGCN’s Torch and Keystone Clubs are asking businesses and organizations for their support to help out the Noblesville Township Trustee’s Office and Angels Attic in Arcadia during their busiest seasons.
Here are three ways to help:
- Your company/organization can fill a seat on BGCN’s school bus with actual items purchased/collected on your own.
- Your company/organization can support Torch/Keystone Club with a monetary donation and the members will purchase the items to stuff the seat for you. Sponsor opportunities are as follows: $150/full seat, $500/back of the bus, $1,000/top of the bus, and $3,000/entire mini bus.
Those who contribute to Stuff Da Bus will receive recognition with a name plate/banner on our buses that will be on display for the town to see during the Noblesville Christmas Parade. Name Plates will vary in size depending on the amount of each contribution. Each sponsor also will receive recognition in ads in local newspapers, including Current.
For those who aren’t able to sponsor an entire seat but would still like to contribute, items or monetary donations will be accepted. The following are the most-needed items requested by both pantries: toilet paper, paper towels, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, soap, laundry detergent, diapers, diaper wipes, formula, baby supplies, socks, gloves/mittens, hats, scarves, underwear, slippers, sweatshirts, children’s books, puzzles, counting toys, dolls, footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, board games, peanut butter, jelly, box dinners, cereal, pizza mix, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, soup, crackers, Pop-Tarts, fruit, mac and cheese, canned tuna, pudding, rice, pancake mix, taco dinners, applesauce, juices, canned fruits, oatmeal, canned potatoes, canned beans, breakfast foods, denture adhesive, denture cleaner, socks, blankets, crossword puzzles, picture frames and general cleaning supplies.
