Stuff the Bus stuffs empty stomachs

Cash donations for the Humane Society $206.10, and Kitimat Food Bank $380.70.

The third annual Stuff the Bus event held last weekend raised over $550 for the Kitimat Food Bank and the Kitimat Humane Society.

The staff from First Canada set up a hotdog stand and a bus outside Save On Foods, collecting food and cash donations for the two organizations

Cash donations for the Humane Society totalled $206.10, with the Kitimat Food Bank receiving $380.70.

A draw was also arranged for a beautiful quilt donated by the Kitimat Quilters Guild.

Out of the 103 tickets in the draw, the winning ticket chosen was Erin Annett’s.

“Save On Foods went above and beyond with their donation of space, in-store specials, pre-made meal packages for the food bank and a generous donation of pet food for the Humane Society,” said First Canada’s Penny Spicer.
