The Stuff the Studio Food and Toy Drive is back for its seventh edition


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Just in time for the holiday season, the seventh annual Stuff the Studio Food and Toy Drive returns!

The spirit of the giving season is here. Now through Friday, Dec. 16, you can donate non-perishable food items or new toys to the RadioAlabama studio in downtown Sylacauga, 99 N. Norton Ave. weekdays between 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (behind the Sylacauga Board of Education, near Walgreens)

Sleeping Giant Heating and Cooling, First Bank of Alabama, Chick-fil-A, Heritage South Credit Union, Walmart, and AltaPointe Health are sponsoring Stuff the Studio. All sponsors except AltaPointe are also accepting food and toy donations.

This Wednesday, Dec. 7, RadioAlabama will be on-location at both Walmart and Chick-fil-A in Sylacauga from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. encouraging the community to come out and support those in need. MIX 106.5’s Michael Brannon will be at Chick-fil-A as well as KiX Country’s David McCurley and Rebecca Young stationed at Walmart.

The charitable donations benefit the Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement (SAFE) and the Alabama Childhood Food Solutions (ACFS). The donations will be on display when looking through the front window of the studio. Cash donations to either ACFS or SAFE are also acceptable.

Once known as the “Stuff the Bus” campaign, the centralized location for donations was changed to the studio due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past six years, the community’s gifts have benefited thousands of families.

“We’re so grateful to the community for all the donations they’ve provided during this campaign the past few years,” said RadioAlabama Executive Vice President Michael Brannon. “It’s our hope that this year’s edition will be just as impressive as last year. Moving the location to the studio two years ago presented an unknown going forward, but it did not interfere with the success of the drive. We look forward to helping the community again this year.”

The seventh annual award-winning Stuff the Studio Food and Toy Drive is presented by RadioAlabama’s MIX 106.5, KiX 100.3, and
