Stuff-A-Bus for Santa Anonymous

Stuff-A-Bus is back in 2017 with a toy drive to benefit Santas Anonymous!

In 2016, the first annual Stuff-A-Bus event raised donations for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank. Six schools and 11 local businesses helped to Stuff-A-Bus, raising a total of 5,542 kg (12,217 lbs.) in donations for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank.

This year, Stuff-A-Bus returns to support Santas Anonymous, a Father Mercredi High School student-led initiative designed to bring Christmas to families in the community.
