What we need:
Stuff the Bus!
How to Stuff the Bus:
Stuff the Bus will provide additional food resources for the Senior Meals on Wheels program.
Step 1: Purchase item/items off of the food list. (Please note specific items!)
Step 2: Take items to specified bus stops (at appropriate times) or to Graue Chevrolet in Lincoln.
Step 3: Stuff the Bus and help us feed our home bound and low income seniors!
As of July 1st, funding for the Senior Meals on Wheels program will cease until an appropriation is made at the State of Illinois. Due to a fiscally responsible executive team, CAPCIL will be able to maintain staffing for the program for several months if no budget or appropriation is passed. However, in order to continue to feed over 100 home bound seniors every month, CAPCIL is looking for help to stretch their food resources.
Thank you Graue Chevrolet for your generous donation and support of the Meals on Wheels Program!
Stay tuned for more STUFF THE BUS opportunities!
