Stuff the VTA bus is back!
Submitted By Brandi Childress
The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is partnering once again with the United States Marine Corps to "Stuff the VTA Bus"! The annual Toys for Tots Drive located next to Christmas in the Park in downtown San Jose will take place on Saturday, December 10 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The goal is to collect as many unwrapped, new toys as possible for children who may not expect to receive a gift this year.
"We look forward to this event every year," said VTA General Manager Michael Burns. "Our community always shows overwhelming generosity through toy and cash donations, customarily outdoing themselves from previous years."
"For the past 15 years or so, VTA has provided a bus to support our mission to fill that bus to capacity with toys for needy children," said Sergeant Daniel P. Best. "I have coordinated this event many of those years - one of which VTA had to bring out a second bus because of all the toys we received. We hope to do that again this year!"
