Trucchi’s Supermarkets hosted their first “STUFF THE BUS” food drive in Taunton to benefit Greater Taunton Charitable Association (GTCA) in 2015. Buses provided by Bloom Bus were be parked at Trucchi’s Supermarkets, located at 53 Tremont Street, the Saturday and Sunday preceding Thanksgiving.
Volunteers from GTCA and many local organizations were on hand to collect donations of food, money and gift cards. A time consuming process of sorting donations was completed at the stores on the buses before they make their way to GTCA’s facility. Once the food arrived at GTCA facility volunteers were on hand to immediately prepare collected items for distribution.
