Hermiston Christian Center is asking people to help “Stuff the Bus” for those in need.
People can stop by the church, located at 1825 W. Highland Ave. in Hermiston, and look for the big yellow school bus with a “Stuff the Bus” sign to drop off donations between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
The donation drive is collecting for three organizations, according to an online post by the church. Canned food will be donated to the Christmas Express that Hermiston Police Department puts on each year to give boxes of food and gifts to families in need.
New or gently used winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves and boots will be donated to Made to Thrive, which provides funding, equipment, rides and other support to students who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate in extracurricular activities.
People can also visit myregistry.com and search for “trucare” to find a list of items needed by TruCare Pregnancy Clinic in Hermiston, which provides support to expectant mothers with little support.
