Stuff a Bus Campaign Breaks Donations Record

We’ve broken the Stuff a Bus record!

The final tally is in from this year’s Calgary Transit Stuff a Bus event held November 5 at all Calgary Co-op stores, and our buses were bulging with a whopping $163,000 worth of food and cash donations for the Calgary Food Bank.

Calgary Transit partnered with Calgary Co-op and radio station XL 103 FM to assist Calgarians in need.

“Once again, Calgarians opened their hearts and really stepped up to help their friends and neighbors”, said Keoma Duce, a spokesperson with the Calgary Food Bank.

Calgary Transit buses were parked outside all 20 Calgary Co-op locations for the day on Nov. 5. The goal was to “stuff a bus” full of non-perishable food and accept cash donations for the Calgary Food Bank. Many volunteers were on hand helping out to make the event another resounding success.

“We are extremely pleased with the result,” said Calgary Transit Director Fred Wong. “It was the 19th annual Stuff a Bus event and the most successful to date!”
