21st Annual ETS Stuff A Bus Campaign
ETS and partners launch campaign to help the hungry
Edmonton Transit System (ETS) representatives and campaign partners today launched the 2015 ETS Stuff a Bus campaign. They’re calling on Edmontonians to help drive out hunger during the holiday season.
ETS volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food or cash donations at various transit centres and Save-On-Foods stores in Edmonton.
“In December, and every month of the year, more than 15,000 Edmontonians turn to the food bank, and thankfully those who are more fortunate care about their neighbours,” said Councillor Andrew Knack. “Please keep up Edmonton’s proud tradition of generosity this holiday season.”
The ETS Stuff a Bus campaign has collected more than 386,549 kilograms of food and $370,285 in cash donations to help feed Edmontonians since its start in 1995. The ETS Stuff a Bus campaign supports Edmonton’s Food Bank, Strathcona Food Bank (with Strathcona County Transit) and Parkland Food Bank.
“Twenty years ago Stuff a Bus was started by an ETS employee and it’s turned into one of the most impactful community campaigns we support,” said ETS manager Ken Koropeski. “ETS truly extends its gratitude to all our partners for their incredible work, which makes Stuff a Bus one of the largest annual food drives in Edmonton.”
