Intercity Transit's popular "Jingle Bus" is on the road again this season giving free rides, delivering gifts, and appearing in Olympia's Holiday Parade.
Intercity Transit, KGY Radio and hundreds of South Sound residents are teaming up to make the season brighter for children and youths of military families stationed in the region.
The sixth annual “Toy Deployment” event gathers donated gifts from Thurston County residents and transports them to Santa’s Castle, a private nonprofit volunteer organization housed at Fort Lewis. Santa’s Castle supports local Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine, activated National Guard and Reserve families experiencing financial difficulties. Through Friday, people can donate an unwrapped toy (appropriate for ages 1-18) or gift certificate. Go to www.intercitytransit.com or KGYradio.com for a list of toy drop-off locations.
