Help The Salvation Army Stuff the Bus with toys for Treasure Valley children on Saturday

The 23rd annual Stuff the Bus toy drive is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 7 outside all Fred Meyer stores in the Treasure Valley.

BOISE, Idaho — KTVB crews brought a heavy dose of holiday chaos to Fred Meyer this week while the staff attempted to gather as many toys as possible for families in need.

The KTVB event kicked off the Stuff the Bus toy drive, set for Saturday, Dec. 7. See how the two KTVB teams did in the above video. 

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 7.  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.
