Help RTA fill the Bus with food for Harvest for Hunger

CLEVELAND -- The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) is partnering with the Children’s Museum of Cleveland to collect canned goods and money for the annual Harvest for Hunger food and fund donation drive with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.  The Triskett Rapid Station will be an alternative location to drop off your monetary or canned goods.

RTA's Fourth Annual 'Fill the Bus' has two new locations this year -- and a new partner!

April 18, from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m., the  Children’s Museum of Cleveland (10730 Euclid Avenue) will host RTA's first 2014 'Fill the Bus' event. Bring your food and or monetary donations to Harvest for Hunger. Tell your friends and neighbors to bring the children, some dollars and some canned goods.

There will be plenty of space to drive up and drop off. Donate at the HealthLine stop in front of the museum, or let your children drop off the food and monetary donations as you head into the museum. Do good for the community on Good Friday!

April 25, from 7 a.m. – 10 a.m., Rapid riders can donate canned goods and monetary donations at the Triskett Rapid Station, 13405 Lakewood Heights Blvd. Volunteers will collect food and cash. There is easy drive up and drop off access at this location as well.
