Stuff the Bus, Fairfax County’s annual campaign to increase food donations and awareness for local, nonprofit food pantries, started in the middle of January and runs each weekend until President’s Day, Feb. 15.
Donated Fastran buses appear each weekend during the program at 14 different locations around the County, including grocery stores and Walmart. On Feb. 6, U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-10) and Supervisor Kathy Smith (D-Sully) will be at the Clifton Giant around noon to help volunteers load the bus at that location.
Donations will benefit Western Fairfax Christian Ministries. The Giant Foods of Clifton is located at 5740 Union Mill Road, Colonnade at Clifton.
Additional Stuff the Bus locations on Feb. 6 include the Fairfax Walmart, 11181 Lee Highway in Fairfax, benefitting the James Mott Community Assistance Program; and the Lorton Giant, 8941 Ox Road in Lorton, benefitting Lorton Community Action Center.
