Help the Less Fortunate this Holiday Season and Stuff the Bus
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow Will Help Collect Food at Noon
Before sitting down with family and friends this Thanksgiving, give back by helping MCTS Stuff the Bus on Wednesday, November 25th! MCTS is proud to partner with 99.1 The Mix, Feeding America and Pick `n Save for the 18th annual one-day food drive. The goal this year is to collect enough food to provide 200,000 meals to hungry families this holiday season.
Stuff the Bus will take place from 6am – 6pm at the Brookfield South Pick `n Save at 15170 W. Greenfield Ave. People can buy food at the store to donate or stop by and drop of donations in the parking lot – just look for the MCTS bus!!
“Every donation, large and small, will make a big difference to families this holiday season. We encourage people to give what they can,” Abele said.
“For many of us who have so much to give thanks for, this event allows us to give something back and help those in need,” Farrow said.
Those who can’t make it to the event can also donate money online. For every $1 donation, Feeding America can provide three meals to someone in need.

Every bus in the MCTS fleet will have a seat reserved in honor of Rosa Parks.
Passengers should expect service delays, especially through the city of Milwaukee.
“I was treated with the utmost respect, and really enjoyed riding the city bus,” said national travel writer John Morris.
The Transit Center property was sold by Milwaukee County to developer Rick Barrett who is redeveloping the land into The Couture project.
The sale and demolition of the Downtown Transit Center means changes for several MCTS routes that run through Downtown Milwaukee.
