Stuff the Bus is an annual toy drive created to help the less fortunate in the Mohawk Valley have a happy holiday season despite any financial circumstances their families might have. It was started in 2008 by Roser Communications Network and its stations, 97.9/105.5 KISS FM, BUG Country 99.7 & 101.1 and TALK! 100.7 in conjunction with WKTV NewsChannel 2.
Over the past 10 years, more than 100,000 toys have been collected, and every one of those toys have stayed in the Mohawk Valley and gone to kids in Oneida, Herkimer, Madison, Otsego, Fulton and Montgomery Counties.
