Stuff A Bus taking place Saturday

The annual Stuff A Bus campaign organized by Red Deer Catholic School Division

The annual Stuff A Bus campaign organized by Red Deer Catholic School Division, École Mother Teresa School and Our Lady of the Rosary School in Sylvan Lake, is taking place Saturday (Dec. 1), said Wayne Stade.

They’ll have buses at all three food stores — No Frills, Sobeys an Wal-Mart — from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ready to be stuffed with non-perishable food and toys.

All food donations will be given to Sylvan Lake Food Bank, said Stade. The Stuff A Bus campaign will also be accepting unwrapped new toys which will be given to the Christmas Bureau for distribution in the Sylvan Lake area.

Last year the volunteers involved collected about $3,000 in food, down slightly from the year before, about half a dozen toys and some clothing for the Christmas Bureau.
