Motorcoach Group Stuffs A Bus For Holiday Charity

Posted on November 23, 2011

BALTIMORE, Md. — The Maryland Motorcoach Association will fight hunger on December 9, 2011 with its Stuff-A-Bus event to benefit the Maryland Food Bank, the Capital Area Food Bank, and Toys for Tots.

Al Spence, president of the Maryland Motorcoach Association, said, “The Stuff-A-Bus event against hunger is an annual tradition of our association that can make an encouraging influence in our state. We have an opportunity here to help Marylanders by encouraging all of our members to come out and participate in this event.”

488,788 Marylanders now live at or below the federal poverty level. 58,823 senior citizens and 137,831 children are at risk of hunger each day, and the fastest growing segment of those in need work full time.
 
The Maryland Food Bank has seen an increase in demand for its services up to 50%, and Capital Area Food Bank of between 30-70%. Many of those being served were considered middle class before this economic recession took hold.
 
Mary Presley, executive administrator of the Maryland Motorcoach Association, said the event’s 2011 goal is to “surpass last year's [donations], and any donation amount can and will make a difference".  Donations of toys, warm clothing, non-perishable food items and cash will be accepted at the Best Western PLUS Hotel and Conference Center, Baltimore, Md. on December 9, 2011, from 6pm -9pm.
