Edmontonians Show Busloads of Generosity
December 03, 2012
Edmontonians donated over 21,000 kg of food and $13,000 in financial contributions to the 2012 ETS Stuff a Bus campaign, an increase of 3,000 kg over last year’s campaign.
“The donations received are equal to fourteen buses stuffed with food,” said Denise Kirkpatrick, Stuff a Bus campaign manager for Edmonton Transit System (ETS). “Thanks to the kindness of Edmontonians, that food will help feed close to 400 families for a month.”
“I also want to thank Save-On Foods, Joe FM, the Edmonton Sun, Global TV, our wonderful volunteers and all Edmontonians who made this campaign such a success,” added Kirkpatrick. “Together, they’ve all made a tremendous difference in their community.”
Stuff a Bus donations go to Edmonton's Food Bank and help people in need.
ETS, along with its partners, has operated the annual Stuff a Bus campaign since 1995. Each year, ETS volunteers bring transit buses to every Save-On Foods store in the city to collect non-perishable food items for the Edmonton’s Food Bank. Since its beginnings, the campaign collected 323,545 kg of food and $338,729 in money to help feed Edmontonians in need.
