7,975 toys were donated for Treasure Valley children during The Salvation Army Stuff The Bus event.

BOISE, Idaho — The 24th annual Stuff the Bus toy drive took place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 12 outside the seven Fred Meyer stores in the Treasure Valley.

During the fundraiser, Treasure Valley residents donated 7,975 toys for children in need.

The goal of Stuff the Bus is to collect toys for families in need in the Treasure Valley during the holiday season. Here’s how it works: Valley Regional Transit buses will be parked outside the seven Fred Meyer stores in the Treasure Valley from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 12. The public is asked to bring new, unwrapped toys (or gift cards) to the event. The Salvation Army will distribute the items to families in need throughout the community in time for Christmas. 

Donors must wear masks and practice social distancing while delivering toys to the bus.

Over the years, more than 100,000 toys have been donated and distributed to children in the Treasure Valley.
