Fill the Bus

Good morning from Frank L. Bowser School,

 

“Over the past 18 years of Fill the Bus our schools in Anglophone East School District have raised in excess of 500,000 pounds of food for the food banks within our district or the equivalent of $1.5 Million…wow!!!”

 

The 19th Annual Fill the Bus School and District Campaigns will be getting underway this week and district buses will be picking up food items on Wednesday, December 19th.   Please consider participating once again this year as the need is tremendously high. No doubt you have seen the media coverage of the homelessness crisis facing our communities, you likely feel like “what can I do to help?” Well Fill the Bus 2019 can help ease some of the symptoms of this situation by bringing in the largest food offering ever.

 

Last year you helped raise thru the FTB campaign food donations of 28,545 lbs a total value of $71,363! 

 

All items can be dropped off at the table set up across from the school office.

 

Food Items Always Needed…

·         Canned goods including soups, fruit, vegetables, beans, etc.

·         Canned luncheon meats

·         Dried Pasta, pasta sauce, Macaroni and Cheese, Mr. Noodle, etc.

·         Cereal, oatmeal, granola bars

·         Instant pudding, apple sauce, peanut butter

·         Sugar, tea, coffee, juice, juice boxes

·         Baby food and formula

We look forward to another successful Fill the Bus campaign.

Thank you so much!
