OCCK Transportation announced the annual Holiday Give and Go campaign will continue next Thursday.
During the sixth edition of the charitable campaign, OCCK asks for monetary donations, as well as food items like cans of tuna, dried pasta, pasta sauce, tea bags, coffee, crackers, cake mix, frosting tubs and boxed stuffing.
The items will be donated to the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank, the Cloud County Food Bank and Abilene Area Food and Clothing.
On Thursday, Dec. 9, riders can donate food items in marked boxes on any OCCK Transportation vehicle, including CityGo, regional paratransit, GoAbilene, GoConcordia and the 81 Connection, while monetary donations can be placed in the fare boxes or given to drivers.
Those not riding can also make donations as well. Food and monetary donations can be brought to the following locations:
OCCK Transportation at 340 N. Santa Fe, Salina
OCCK Corporate Office at 1710 W. Schilling, Salina
OCCK Regional Office at 1502 Lincoln, Concordia
CountryMart at 1900 N. Buckeye, Abilene
“We are continually looking for ways to give back to the community,” said Michelle Griffin, mobility manager for North Central Kansas. “This sixth annual Holiday Give and Go program allows us a great way of doing just that. We are also excited for the opportunity to support our area food banks and all of the work they are doing in North Central Kansas.”
