Stuff The Bus 2023


The countdown begins for Christmas Day, and we need your help to bring holiday magic to thousands of children in the Tucson area!

iHeartMedia-Tucson, along 92.9 The Bull, Mega 97.1, HOT 98.3, 93.7 KRQ, 790 AM KNST, Fox Sport 1450, and Tejano 1600 and The Salvation Army Tucson are grateful to once again partner with Sun Tran and Walmart on Friday, December 1st, as we broadcast live all day from the event at Walmart, 7150 E. Speedway Blvd. iHeartRadio staff and The Salvation Army Tucson officers, staff, and volunteers will be there collecting new unwrapped toys for ages 2 to 17.

Stuff-the-Bus is an annual toy drive created to help the less fortunate in the Tucson area to have a merry Christmas. The Salvation Army Tucson stepped on the “bus” in 2003, and since then thousands of toys have been collected. We’re proud to say that every toy has stayed right here and will continue to do so.

“This has been a challenging year for so many, and I have hope,” said Captain Christopher Kim, City Coordinator Tucson Metro. “My hope comes from watching the Tucson community come together in times of need and seeing the generosity and compassion from people stepping up to help their neighbors.

Stuff-the-Bus is another way to give to struggling families with children to ensure they have a Christmas.”

By participating in Stuff-the-Bus, you’ll be doing more than donating toys. Our goal is to create smiles on more than 6,000 children’s faces Christmas morning because of YOU! Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas, and being a part of this event will enable thousands of children to do just that!

“Sun Tran has had the amazing opportunity to participate in Stuff-the-Bus Toy Drive since 2001,” said Steve Spade, General Manager of Sun Tran. “Throughout the years we have been able to collect 130,652 toys and $13,389. This year we hope to help even more families in need.”
