Cedar Rapids Titans to Host 2nd Annual "Stuff the Bus" to Tackle Hunger

For the 2nd straight year the Cedar Rapids Titans will put their focus on tackling hunger throughout Eastern Iowa. The Titans will team up with Waypoint of Cedar Rapids, Cumulus Radio stations of Cedar Rapids, and Cedar Valley World Travel to host the 2nd annual "Stuff the Bus" on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.
Titans players, Titan Dolls, coaches and staff will be collecting non-perishable food items at the Walmart Supercenter located at 2645 Blairs Ferry Rd NE in Cedar Rapids from 6:00am - 6:00pm in an effort to stuff a Cedar Valley coach bus full of food items to help those in need this holiday season. Cumulus stations will be on location throughout the day broadcasting live.
"Last year we collected nearly 400 pounds of food and that was a huge testament of the generosity of this community. As the holiday season approaches there are many families who don't have the means to put a meal on their table. We want to make sure every family is able to celebrate & enjoy the holidays," said Chris Kokalis, Titans co-owner and general manager.
Fans in the community will have the opportunity to meet and receive autographs from the players & dolls. Cash donations will also be accepted on the day of the event.
Waypoint's mission is to strengthen and empower individuals who are homeless, living in poverty, or victims of domestic or sexual violence; and to help children gain the essential skills vital to reaching their full potential. Waypoint provides shelter and support for those in crisis due to homelessness, poverty, domestic violence or sexual assault. It also provides quality child care to over 600 children daily of all socio-economic levels.
