Businesses sought for Stuff the Bus campaign

Arizona Tiremen Services in Apache Junction is hosting its Fourth Annual Stuff The Bus challenge during which local businesses compete to collect the most toys, food, gift cards and new clothing to donate to Project Help. The winning business name and year is added to a rotating plaque and that business gets the plaque for one year. The goal each year is to collectively fill a school bus with all the donations.

Project Help provides assistance to families of children attending the Apache Junction Unified School District. The Project Help office is at 195 E. Superstition Blvd. in Apache Junction. Its phone number is 480-288-2955. For more information, visit www.ajusd.org and click on the Community drop-down tab.

The following businesses have signed up to participate: Arizona Tiremen Services, AJI Sporting Goods, Arnolds Auto, Malones Tire, Republic Services, Right Away Disposal, R & J Rockin’ Automotive, Superstition Mountains Regional Business Alliance, The Hitching Post and Three Phase Mechanical.
