Stuff the Bus runs through Dec. 4
Stuff the Bus will mark its eighth year.
The Camas Washougal Business Alliance is once again teaming up with local school districts and the community, including Safeway.
This year Safeway will partner in the Stuff the Bus program a bit differently. In the past, they have donated food bags filled with non-perishable food items that have been used by the food bank throughout the year.
This year, they will be collecting Turkey Bucks used to distribute full holiday dinners to families in need throughout the community for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Community members can support the Stuff the Bus effort by donating to Turkey Bucks at the Washougal Safeway location or by giving canned and non-perishable food to Camas and Washougal schools.
< p>Donations can also be made at either Washougal High School or Camas High School during regular school hours on Friday, Dec. 4.
Food collected through Stuff the Bus is donated to the Children’s Home Society and the C.A.R.O.L. Program, coordinated by the Camas-Washougal Fire Department. It is also distributed in baskets to families through the American Legion in Skamania County.
