A special thank you to Industrial Technical, North American Construction Group, TLC Disposal and Shoppers Drug Mart for making direct donations to support Santas Anonymous! 

Stuff-A-Bus 2018 was a huge success thanks to you!

Stuff-A-Bus returned for the third year, and this time the Transit team supported Santas Anonymous, a Father Mercredi High School student-led initiative designed to bring Christmas to families in the community.

Beginning on Nov. 20 2018, local businesses, organizations and schools participated in the annual Stuff-A-Bus event by collecting donations of toys and gift cards for the local Santas Anonymous initiative.

On Friday, Dec. 14, Municipal Transit buses visited participating local businesses, organizations and schools to collect their donations. Special guests on the bus included students from the Santas Anonymous initiative, as well as Santa and Mrs. Claus, who took time out of their very busy schedules to thank all participating businesses, organizations and schools for their kind donations. 

This year, 26 local businesses participated in the Stuff-A-Bus campaign, with a total of 39 pick-up locations, which is an increase of 10 more locations than last year’s campaign.

Thanks to the generosity of local participating businesses, organizations and schools, we were able to collect approximately $12,000 in toy and cash donations. 

Santas Anonymous has been run by the students and teachers of Father Mercredi High School since 1984. 

History of Stuff-A-Bus

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.

In 2017, Municipal Transit buses visited participating local businesses, organizations and schools to collect their donations. Special guests on the bus included students from the Santas Anonymous initiative, as well as Santa and Mrs. Claus, who took time out of their very busy schedules to thank all participating businesses, organizations and schools for their kind donations. Thanks to the generosity of the participating businesses, organizations and schools, approximately $21,500 in toy and cash donations was collected.

Thank you to all participants for your generosity and for supporting our community.
