Athens Transit conducts food drive

Athens-Clarke County Transit is looking for donations of canned and non-perishable foods: the Stuff-a-Bus campaign that began earlier this week continues through Friday, with a Transit bus making stops at various locations around Athens, today at the Library on Baxter Street. Donated food goes to the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank.
