Boys and Girls Club of Noblesville's Club Kids are on a mission to support community food pantries this holiday season by “Stuffing Da Bus” with needed goods.

Members of BGCN’s Torch and Keystone Clubs are asking businesses and organizations for their support to help out the Noblesville Township Trustees Office and Angels Attic in Arcadia during their busiest seasons.  Club members want to make the process as easy as possible so options are available.

  • Option 1:  Your Company/Organization can fill a seat on BGCN’s school bus with actual items purchased/collected on your own.
  • Option 2:  Your Company/Organization can support Torch/Keystone Club with a monetary donation and the members will purchase the items to stuff the seat for you.  Sponsor opportunities are as follows; Full Seat - $150, “Got Our Back” Back of the Bus - $500, “Got Us Covered” Top of the Bus with banners on both sides - $1,000, and “Stuff Our Turkey”  Entire Mini Bus - $3,000. 

To show off each company’s generosity, those who contribute to Stuff Da Bus will receive recognition via a name plate/banner on our buses that will be on display for the town to see during the Noblesville Christmas Parade.  Name Plates will vary in size depending on the amount of each contribution. Each sponsor will also receive recognition in our advertisement in The Times and Current.  Club members will also be able to distribute any promotional items to the hundreds of residents that attend the Christmas parade for each business/organization! 

For those who aren’t able to sponsor an entire seat but would still like to contribute, item or monetary donations will be accepted.

The following are the most-needed items requested by both pantries.

  • Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Toothpaste, Shampoo, Shower Gel, Soap, Laundry Detergent, Diapers, Diaper Wipes, Formula, Baby Supplies.
