Janesville, WI, January 8, 2020 -- Coach USA /Van Galder has teamed up with the Janesville Jets for a “Stuff the Bus” event on January 31, 2020 to support ECHO. ECHO’s mission is dedicated to meeting housing, food and other basic human needs, addressing the barriers to self-sufficiency.

Doors at the Janesville Ice Arena will open at 6:00 p.m., with puck drop at 7:00 p.m.
“Having Coach USA/ Van Galder and the Janesville Jets, team up to fight hunger seemed like a natural fit since we both really care and want the best for our community by helping ECHO. Also, this would be a fun and unique way to give the fans a challenge to stuff a bus while helping those in need,” said Coach USA /Van Galder General Manager Allen Fugate.
Janesville Jets fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the game. All donations will be collected as fans enter the arena. Additionally, this is Coach USA /Van Galder ‘s company night out at the Janesville Jets. There will be a couple of other fun things planned for everyone in attendance as well.
