As part of BC Transit’s annual Stuff the Bus campaign, students from John Stubbs, Wishart, Happy Valley and Sangster elementary schools collected more than 2,000 non-perishable food items, $150 and even some toys to be donated to the Goldstream Food Bank. On Tuesday, Santa’s helpers, including Mrs. Claus, Elf and a gingerbread man loaded the donations onto a bus and students were invited to see the fruits of their labour.
