2019 Stuff A Bus
Stuff-A-Bus food drive benefits Friendship House. This year we collected nearly 8 Tons of food.
For the past 31 years, CityLink has hosted the Stuff-A-Bus food drive to help eliminate hunger in Peoria. With a long partnership with Kroger to collect enough food to stuff a classic CityLink bus, the donations collected during the annual food drive benefit the food pantry at the Peoria Friendship House. Since January of this year, the Peoria Friendship House food pantry has provided approximately 50,000 meals to families and individuals who are dealing with hunger in Peoria.

The 16th annual Maui Jim Maka Maka Run/Walk took place on Thursday, August 15th at the Maui Jim corporate headquarters on North Allen Road. All $60,000 raised at this event benefited the Peoria Friendship House.
