Superstore ‘Stuffs The Bus’ for Christmas Hamper Fund

The recent spate of inhospitable weather has clearly not dampened the generous spirit of the people of Campbell River as gift items, toys and 2,400 lbs of non-perishable foods worth an estimated total of $10,000 were placed with Superstore’s Stuff the Bus bus over a two-day period.

The CR Shito-Ryu Karate club were particularly noted for their huge donation of goods. These donations will be used in the building of the Christmas hampers to be delivered on Saturday, Dec. 17. Donations of money, non-perishable foods and toys are also still welcomed at the Hamper Depot at 1100 Homewood Road, in behind Perks Donuts. The depot is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.Monday to Saturday. The phone number is 250-914-3716.

Applications for a hamper may be completed at the Ministry of Employment & Income Assistance located at 833A 14th Ave., corner of Greenwood. The deadline for these applications is Dec. 6.
