Antelope Valley Transit Authority Rallies Local Sponsors For A Holiday Drive Thru Grocery and Toy Giveaway on December 17, 2022.


On Saturday, December 17th, 2022, Antelope Valley Transit Authority, in partnership with a team of generous sponsors, will host the Holiday Drive Thru Grocery and Toy Giveaway.

"AVTA is committed to partnering with the Antelope Valley community each holiday season in this effort to bring joy to those residents in need," said AVTA Board Chairman Marvin Crist. "The AVTA board of directors, management, and staff, joined with many generous organizations, strive to make a real difference for A.V. families in need. We are all thrilled to be able to serve our residents in this manner.”
Turkeys, holiday meal supplies, groceries, toys, and clothing will be distributed at the AVTA Bus facility located at 42210 6th Street West, Lancaster, CA 93534 from 10 AM to 3 PM (while supplies last).

Residents of the Antelope Valley communities can drive through and pick up a turkey or ham, and other holiday groceries, plus toys or clothing for children from the AVTA Stuff-a-Bus program.
Toy collections were organized and staffed by AVTA Stuff-a-Bus team and the 2022 participating charities: the Children’s Bureau, Antelope Valley Partners for Health, the Child and Family Guidance Center, JustServe, Valley Oasis, the Boys & Girls Club of the Antelope Valley, and the South Antelope Valley Emergency Services of Palmdale (SAVES).

The Drive Thru Grocery Giveaway event is made possible by the generous donations from Antelope Valley Transit Authority, City of Lancaster, City of Palmdale, A.V. Chevrolet, Teamsters Local 848, Antelope Valley Sheriff’s Boosters, Waste Management, IBEW, Vallarta Supermarkets, the L.A. Regional Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Sygma Foods, Sysco Foods, and US Foods.

­“"I’d also like to recognize the generosity of our Stuff-a-Bus sponsors, such as Duke Engineering, BYD Motors, WAVE/Ideanomics, Palmdale Elementary Teachers Association, MCI/New Flyer, RentSource, Complete Coach Works, Mission Bank, Vinsa Insurance Associates, OpSec Security, High Desert Medical Group, DP Commercial Brokerages, Bayshore Consulting Group, Avail Technologies, AVEDGE, Kaiser Permanente, the Weideman Group, and MV Transportation, continued Chairman Crist.  “These sponsors made Stuff-a-Bus a huge success again this year."
