2018 ‘Stuff The Van’ Toy Drive in Casper
After all these years, I really shouldn’t be surprised by Casper’s generosity – but it continues to amaze every year. We keep adding children and charities – and this city keeps stepping up and never misses the mark, no matter the ask. We appreciate everyone and everything that makes it go, more than you know – it’s part of what makes this such an amazing place to live.
‘Tis the season for helping Casper kids – as the Stuff The Van Toy Drive returns for year #21 - December 10th through the 15th, presented by Greiner Ford, Powered by Lithia. Our mission is the same as in the past – collecting toys and gifts to make sure no Casper child goes without this Christmas – and feeding them well beyond the holidays, with the vital Weekend Food Bags provided through the Wyoming Food For Thought Project.
Our families this year are served by the Wyoming Food For Thought Project, the Casper Housing Authority, CASA, the Boys & Girls Club, the Child Development Center, and Seton House – and this year, the need is bigger than ever. Join us live at Walmart East from 7 ‘til 7 each day, as we collect new, unwrapped toys and clothes for kids of all ages, plus cash – over 2,000 kids on our Christmas list so far, with more expected. Watch this space and listen daily for updates on specific needs across the Townsquare Media family of stations – 104.7 KISS-FM, K2 Radio, My Country 95.5, Rock 96.7, 107.9 JACK-FM, and AM 1400 The Cowboy.
When: December 10th - December 15th | 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Where: Walmart East | 4400 E 2nd St, Casper, WY 82609
How To Help: Stop by and make a donation of new, unwrapped toys and clothes for kids of all ages. Cash is accepted on site and monetary donations are accepted online.
“Stuff The Van is always our favorite time of the year,” says Donovan Short, Townsquare Media’s perennial Stuff The Van host. “After all these years, I really shouldn’t be surprised by Casper’s generosity – but it continues to amaze every year. We keep adding children and charities – and this city keeps stepping up and never misses the mark, no matter the ask. We appreciate everyone and everything that makes it go, more than you know – it’s part of what makes this such an amazing place to live.”
“The generosity Casper shows to Stuff The Van was instrumental in the beginning and success of Food For Thought,” says Wyoming Food For Thought Project’s Jamie Purcell. “From our first year serving 180 kids, to today, when we’re reaching over 675 with the Weekend Food Bags – that are vital to get local kids access to food when they’re away from school cafeterias, which can often be their primary food source. Wyoming Food For Thought Project believes in a community where everyone – no matter what – has access to good and healthy food.”
We’d love to see you in person at Walmart East from December 10-15, but as always, you’re welcome to stay warm and donate anytime online here. Thanks in advance, for 20 years of giving – with your help, we’ll make year #21 the biggest Stuff The Van yet.
