Friday, Nov, 21, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Halifax Transit and operators with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 508 are gearing up to celebrate the 24th year of stuffing a bus in support of FEED NOVA SCOTIA, and they need your help!
Sign up your office, business, school or day care now and start collecting non-perishable food items. On Friday, Dec. 5, Halifax Transit buses will come to pick up those food items and all donations will go to needy families during the holiday season.
Last year the Stuff-A-Bus campaign brought in more than 24 tonnes of food for FEED NOVA SCOTIA. This year, Halifax Transit employees are hoping to beat that total. If you wish to make a donation before the Dec. 5 pickup, drop off your food items to any Scotiabank location in the Halifax area.
Stuff-A-Bus is an annual initiative that was started in 1991 by Amalgamated Transit Union Local 508 to benefit local children and families who are in need during the holidays. Halifax Transit, C100, ATU Local 508 and Scotiabank are proud to support and coordinate this year's Stuff-A-Bus campaign.
