The Peoria Mustangs have a long-standing partnership with CityLink and the Stuff-A-Bus food drive. They continue
to support the food drive by hosting Stuff-A-Bus games during their season, handing out shopping lists at
participating Kroger stores and the players help with the unloading and sorting of donations at the Peoria
Friendship House of Christian Service once the food drive concludes. This year, the players hosted a food donation collection event on October 30, 2022 at the Kroger on Sterling. During this event, fans were able to stop by the store to help the Mustangs collect donations for Stuff-A-Bus.
