Some local students are on board with filling a community need.

Clarence Fulton’s leadership class is aiming to ‘stuff the bus’ Thursday in the Buy-Low Foods parking lot in the Okanagan Landing Plaza between 6:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Students will be on hand throughout the day tomorrow collecting non-perishable food items, winter clothing, toys, toiletries, baby needs and cash donations.

“The idea is to fill up the bus” said Rick Smith, leadership teacher. “We have 406 cubic feet to fill.”

The stuff the bus challenge is part of Fulton’s annual food drive, which will benefit the Salvation Army Food Bank, as well as a few families in the area.

“We have a few families in the Fulton community that are in need,” said Smith. “So we’re trying to get the Okanagan Landing and Fulton community to support us on this.”

Tax reciepts will be available to those making cash donations.
