    WHY:  The Peoria Rivermen are hosting Stuff-A-Bus night at their game against the Mississippi RiverKings on November 25. The first 1000 fans who bring a donation of non-perishable food to the game will receive a Peoria Rivermen t-shirt featuring the Stuff-A-Bus 30th Anniversary Celebration logo on the back. One donation is required per person and the t-shirt giveaway is limited to one t-shirt per fan.
    For the past 30 years, CityLink has hosted the Stuff-A-Bus food drive to help eliminate hunger in Peoria. With a long partnership with Kroger to collect enough food to stuff a classic CityLink bus, the donations collected during the annual food drive benefit the food pantry at the Peoria Friendship House. Since January of this year, the Peoria Friendship House food pantry has provided approximately 54,000 meals to families and individuals who are dealing with hunger in Peoria. The goal this year is to collect 10 tons of food to help sustain the food pantry at the Peoria Friendship House for the upcoming year.
