Yankee Trails and The Bus Stop Club are partnering with the Bethlehem Central School District to collect non-perishable food items that will help support the BC Backpack Program, a weekly program providing food to students experiencing food insecurity. 

On Friday, June 5, watch for the Yankee Trails Hope Bus as it travels through the town of Bethlehem picking up donated items. There will be music, an appearance by Lightning McQueen and other friends.

The route and schedule can be found here. You can also find out where the bus is on Friday in real time.

If you are not on the bus route but want to participate, you can drop off your items at the high school between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 5. The drop off location will be in front of the “Athletics Entrance” on the Delaware Ave. side of the high school.

The bus will be collecting the items listed below. If you want to participate, please leave donated items, in a bag with handles, near your mailbox or at the end of your driveway, so the volunteers can easily collect the items.
