Full Release

Cary, NC – As part of GoCary’s sixth annual food drive, passengers who bring one canned or non-perishable food item to any fixed-route GoCary bus will get a free ride each time they board with a donation on November 12. All items collected will be donated to Cary’s Dorcas Ministries Food Pantry to provide food assistance to those in need during this season of giving. Acceptable items include, but are not limited to, canned meat, tuna, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, uncooked pasta, dry cereal and boxed rice. Please no glass items.

Citizens can drop off donated food in bins located in the Cary Town Hall lobby, located at 316 N. Academy St., from November 13-16. GoCary staff will also host a table event at the Cary Train Depot on November 12 from 7-9 a.m. The goal is to collect more than 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food items.

GoCary has provided over 2.8 million trips for citizens and visitors since the Town of Cary introduced door-to-door service in 2001; its fixed route service was started in 2005. GoCary operates Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Using the online trip planner, citizens can ride GoCary to connect to GoTriangle and GoRaleigh, reaching destinations in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
