Sun Tran, KGUN 9 News, and Sam Levitz Furniture have partnered to sponsor a one-day “Stuff-the-Bus” event benefitting EMERGE! Center Against Domestic Abuse. The event, which will be held on Friday, October 17, helps promote Domestic Violence Awareness Month. A Sun Tran bus will be located at Sam Levitz Furniture’s eastside location at 100 North Pantano Road. Donations will be accepted from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Those who wish to contribute are asked to donate the following needed items: used cell phones, grocery store gift cards, new towels and twin bedding, pillows, razors, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Additionally, any cash donations will be matched by the Arizona Lottery up to $10,000.
“Sun Tran looks forward to Stuff-the-Bus, it gives us all the opportunity to help improve the lives of individuals and families in crisis in our community,” said Sun Tran General Manager Kate Riley. “We encourage everyone to come down to this event and donate to the women and children in the EMERGE! program, while they focus on healing.”
Sun Tran is operated by Transdev and under contract with the City of Tucson. With more than 600 employees, 40 fixed routes and a fleet of over 250 buses, Sun Tran’s mission is to work together to improve the community’s quality of life by providing safe, efficient, reliable customer-focused public transportation.
