So its that time of year again and the Bus is Back!

The Bus will be at Zellers on Northern Avenue from 10 am to 2 pm this Saturday to kick off the month-long collection.

We need the community's involvement to fill the Bus!

Gather your new and gently used toys , along with any non-perishible food items and bring them to the bus,or drop them in any of the boxes located on the regular transit buses. As well, they will collect any monetary donations on the Stuff a Bus only.

Hope to see a large turn out for this event!!

I didnt think they took used clothes? Thats what I was told before (I can't remember who told me)....

Ive got a garbage bag or 2 of clothes if they'll take them, and Im sure I'll have some toys too.

If anyone could pick up the stuff as I don't drive Id appreciate it.....

I was just wondering if we can drop off toys into the boxes on the regular buses. like i have a couple grocery bags full, can they be dropped in just like that? or do they need to be gift wrapped or something?

pls do not wrap anything as they will have to unwrap it and see what it is to start with and yes they can be dropped off on any city bus. There are boxes on the buses for that purpose
