SCRANTON, PA (WBRE/WYOU) — We are just a few weeks away from Christmas and people in Scranton are in the giving spirit.
The County of Lackawanna Transit System or COLTS, is holding its annual Stuff the Bus event. Toys donated will go to Toys for Tots in our area and help children in eight counties across our region. Last year, COLTS was able to collect nearly 700 toys and nearly $4,000 on monetary donations.
“Collect as much money and toys as possible to really make a difference in local children’s lives,” COLTS communication director Gretchen Wintermantel said.
“We tell them happy holidays. Thank them for their donation and it really goes a long ways, so it really actually gets me into the Christmas spirit,” Marine Corps Toys for Tots sergeant Adam Vasquez said.
