Fill the Bus 2022

SunLine Transit Agency will launch its 15th Annual Fill the Bus Holiday Food Drive on Thursday, November 17th from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  SunLine will park a bus at two grocery store locations – one towards the east end of the Coachella Valley and the other at the west end – which will be filled with donations that will help those in need this holiday season.

The beneficiaries for the 2022 Fill the Bus event are two well-known nonprofit organizations in the area that will distribute the donations locally: Galilee Center and Food Now. SunLine invites the community to help fill the bus with non-perishable food items, turkeys, frozen meats and other assorted trimmings for holiday meals. SunLine also encourages donations of new, packaged toiletries, personal hygiene products, diapers and other household products.

The locations where the buses will be parked for Fill the Bus are as follows:

  • Walmart: 34-500 Monterey Avenue in Palm Desert
  • Ralphs: 1733 East Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs (the Smoke Tree Village Shopping Center
