Last year, as a way to address some of the local needs, while in the midst of learning about global poverty, Campbell River Christian School (CRCS) students and Baptist Church youth started the “Stuff A Bus” challenge.
As part of the World Vision 30 Hour famine, CRCS students and CRBC youth wanted to give back to the community and help those in need.
Collecting food items for the Food Bank is an opportunity for youth to reach out in a different way that goes beyond the confines of their peer groups and helps them understand that the challenges of global hunger and poverty are a reality for people here in Campbell River.
Stuff A Bus is a challenge that invites the community to give non-perishable food items to literally stuff a bus.
Last year’s event was a great success as we were able to stuff the Campbell River Christian School bus to near capacity, filling each bench with four banana boxes of food for the Food Bank.
This year they want to invite the community to give more, to fill the bus, floor to ceiling.
Stuff A Bus is proudly sponsored by Quality Foods and 99.7 The River, and will be located at the corner of Merecroft and Dogwood on March 24 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Come out and give generously to the Campbell River Food Bank.
