Our 2021 Bust the Bus with Us event is Saturday, August 28th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Charles Aris Executive Search in Downtown Greensboro (299 North Greene Street).

Last year, we hosted the inaugural Bust the Bus event in lieu of the Kirkwood 5K. We were amazed to see how successful it was – with more than $18,000 in monetary donations and 2,086 pounds of food collected. While we know many of you miss the Kirkwood 5K, we feel Bust the Bus is the best way to host this year’s event. The age group Backpack Beginnings benefits the most is currently unable to be vaccinated, and we want to ensure that our event is as safe as possible for everyone involved!

So, start collecting your items and we’ll see you August 28th! Here are the items Backpack Beginnings needs the most:
Canned chicken
Squeeze jelly
Plastic peanut butter jars
Individual oatmeal packets
Chef Boyardee large pop-top cans
Canned fruits and vegetables
Plastic grocery bags
Gently used stuffed animals
Gently used children’s books
Gently used children’s clothing

FREE Kona Ice for those who donate and first 100 donors receives a goodie bag.
