ST. CLOUD -- Helping those in need is the goal for Metro Bus as they put on their Fill the Bus food drive at Summertime by George!

The food drive goes from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. tonight, however volunteers will continue to take donations until the park closes at 9:00 p.m.

You can bring cash or non-perishable donations to the red and white New Flyer Metro Bus that will be on the grounds.

All cash donations received are eligible for a matching grant, up to $5,000 for each food shelf, from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless.

Last summer’s food drive, Metro Bus and partner businesses collected over $600 and 3,000 pounds for local food shelves.
