Stuff the Bus or­ga­nizer Shan­non Wade with vol­un­teers Michael Sweet, Garry Toft and Shane Hil­lier of The Sal­va­tion Army pack away the gro­ceries at Stuff the Bus last Thurs­day, Au­gust 31.

The com­mu­nity showed their sup­port for those in ne ed and was able to Stuff the Bus for The Sal­va­tion Army Food bank.

Stuff the Bus w as held at the ATB Park­ing lot on Th urs­day, Au­gust 31. The com­mu­nity came out in droves to sup­port those who use the local food bank.

Or­ga­nizer of the an­nual event, Shan­non Wade, was heart­ened by the com­mu­nity sup­port.

“It al­ways seems that the com­mu­nity pulls to­gether and comes out in sup­port,” she said.

Jen­nifer Hil­lier of The Sal­va­tion Army tells the Mail they were down a lit­tle bit in food do­na­tions but were able to col­lect 1,753 pounds of food do­na­tions.

They did, howe ver, see a jump in fi­nanc ial con­tri­bu­tions and col­lected $4,209 in dona tions. This w ill be matched by Enc ana up to $3,000.

Hil­lier says she is grate­ful for En­cana’s con­tri­bu­tion, as well as the hard work of Wade and the many vol­un­teers who con­trib­uted their time.

She is als o grate­ful to Hi- Way 9 Ex­press, which spon­sored a bar­be­cue to raise funds for the food bank.

“It was a great event and as al­ways sup­port from the com­mu­nity was amaz­ing,” said Hil­lier.

She adds if any­one missed Stuff the Bus and still wants to do­nate, food do­na­tions can be dropped off at The Sal­va­tion Army Church or at the do­na­tion boxes in local gro­cery stores. Fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tions can be dropped at the church or at The Sal­va­tion Army Thrift Store.
