Plymouth Bus Drivers’ to Host a Food Drive this Saturday

This Saturday, bus drivers for Plymouth Community Schools will be tackling a different kind of drive; a food drive.

On Saturday, December 16th, drivers are holding the ‘Stuff a Bus Food Drive’ in order to benefit the Marshall County Neighborhood Center and the Bread of Life Food Pantry. Drivers will be stationed in the Walmart parking lot in Plymouth from 9 a.m. until noon.

They’ll be collecting nonperishable food items in an attempt to fill an entire bus with supplies that will assist local families in need. Come out this Saturday and help Plymouth bus drivers collect enough food to drive away hunger this holiday season.
