Methodist Health System is proud to once again partner with area organizations for the WOWT Stuff the Bus Food and Toy Drive on Thursday, Dec. 1, from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. This annual event aims to fight hunger in our community and help ensure that all Omaha children have a joyful holiday season.

Volunteers will be collecting nonperishable food items, paper goods and new, unwrapped toys at two locations: Methodist Women’s Hospital at 192nd Street and West Dodge Road, and the NP Dodge building at 87th Street and West Dodge Road.

Donating is quick, easy and contact-free. Simply pull up and pop your trunk, and our volunteers will collect your donation right from your vehicle. There's no need to get out of your vehicle. Cash donations will also be accepted.

All donations will benefit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the Kountze Memorial Food Pantry. The pantries provide food for more than 50,000 people in our community each year.

Special needs at the pantry this season include:

  • Beans

  • Breakfast foods like cereal, oatmeal and pancake mix

  • Canned meat/fish

  • Canned vegetables

  • Crackers

  • Meal starter kits like Hamburger Helper

  • Pasta and pasta sauce

  • Rice

  • Toilet Paper

While the items listed above are in constant demand, all nonperishable food items and paper goods will be gratefully accepted. New, unused toys for children of all ages will also be accepted.
