Dallas, 12/05/2016 / SubmitMyPR /

 1-800-Car-Wreck is proud to announce the beginning of the annual “Stuff the Bus” Holiday Toy Drive in association with K104 and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). The fundraiser will help provide toys, socks, blankets and canned food to Dallas area children, families and the elderly who are in need during this holiday season.

“We are so happy to participate in this worthwhile campaign again,” stated Amy Witherite, partner at Eberstein Witherite, LLP, the law firm of 1-800-Car-Wreck. “Although people are in need throughout the year, it seems as if there is a greater spirit of giving during the holiday season, so we want to take advantage of the good work that DART and K104 are doing to encourage Dallas-area residents to contribute to this toy drive. Contributions help area children and seniors and families, and it’s all about trying to make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate.”

As part of the toy drive, Eberstein Witherite will be donating supplies such as toys, blankets and food. Anyone who is interested in contributing to the toy drive can bring new and unwrapped adult socks, blankets, unwrapped toys and canned food to Mockingbird Station on Friday, December 2, 2016 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The team at 1-800-Car-Wreck will be on site from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., and will be guests on the Dede in the Morning Show during that time. K104 is the well-known nickname of KKDA-FM, and the station is a sponsor of the “Stuff a Bus” campaign. Radio hosts will do a live broadcast at Mockingbird Station.

DART bus drivers and DART police officers will be accepting donations during the event, which is designed to filled an entire DART bus with toys, clothes and food as apart of two DART employee campaigns: “Santa Cops” and “Comforting of the Souls.”

“Santa Cops” is run by the DART Police Department and provides toys and food to disadvantaged families. “Comforting of the Souls” is run by DART’s Northwest Bus Division and provides adult socks and blankets to the elderly living in nursing home facilities.
