Caremore Health Plan of Arizona Presents “Stuff the Bus” Week

The Caremore Stuff the Bus will be held in Tucson from December 2nd to the 6th,  9 am- 12 pm and then in Green valley on the 7th from 9 am to 12 pm

TUCSON –A “Stuff the Bus” event to benefit the Community Food Banks will be held by CareMore Health Plan of Arizona at two Care Center locations in the Tucson area the week of December 2nd through the 7th.

Officials at CareMore stated the CareMore bus will be stationed at the Care Center location, 4821 N Stone Avenue (near the corner of River and Stone), daily from December 2nd through the 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  The bus will then be in Green Valley during the same time frame on Saturday, December 7th.  The Green Valley Care Center is located at 191 W Esperanza Boulevard.

CareMore hopes that the public will participate by taking non-perishable food items to the bus. The food banks also need toiletries and senior incontinence products.  The drive is being held to assist the food banks in providing those in need with ample amounts of food and ancillary items.

Mary Jane Goodrick, Executive Director of the Green Valley-Sahuarita Food Bank stated, “When people in our community don’t have enough food to get through the day, it costs us all. Food insecurity creates health problems. Children may struggle to learn. Workers may be less productive. Opportunities are lost. These are all real people struggling to get enough to eat.”
