100 Mile House Save-On-Foods are bringing a bus to help with donations

The Save-On-Foods is raising money and food donations for the food bank by selling hampers and peanut butter.

“We’re bringing a school bus in and getting customers to help fill it up when they make a donation,” said Richard Bullen, store manager. “We’re just trying to support the community.”

The hamper, a basket full of canned food, crackers and other food is on sale for $10. The hamper goes directly to the food bank.

As for the peanut butter, the store donates a jar to the food bank for every one purchased by a customer. The peanut butter part is a franchise-wide policy, starting on Friday.

“It’s the right thing to do this time of year. People are less unfortunate than us,” said Bullen of the decision to sell the hampers. “A lot of people affected by the fire still haven’t recovered. The purchase of the hamper and peanut butter gives the purchaser the chance to win one of five $100 gift cards.

This is the first time the store in 100 Mile House has done the hamper sale.

“We just wanted to do something to support the community,” said Bullen.

The Stuff the Bus campaign is on Saturday, Nov. 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with free hot chololate. Hot dogs will be available.
