Child Hunger Outreach Partners (CHOP) is honored to be the recipient of Scooter’s Food Drive that will run Feb. 14 through March 18, 2022. Funds and non-perishable food items collected during the drive will benefit CHOP’s programs, including In-School Pantries, the Backpack Program, Pop Up Pantries and Summer Meal Program.
Bill Joseph Snyder, III, known as Scooter to many, was deeply dedicated to the community, including to Stuff The Bus, which helps CHOP collect nonperishable food each fall.
“Dani Ruff, of CHOP, identified the winter months as being their slowest donation time. We wanted to carry on with something that was so important to Bill, had a list of people that he wanted to memorialize with a food drive, now we will hold this one for him. We hope that future food drives will honor both Bill and someone from his list.”
“Scooter’s involvement in Stuff The Bus was vital to the success of the event,” shared Dani Rufh, CHOP CEO and Founder. “We are deeply saddened by the loss of Scooter, but are all simply better for knowing him.”

- Jones’ Store in Warren Center, Pa.
- Friendship Star Quilt Shop and FWF Wellness in Sayre, Pa.
