Transit operator behind original “Stuff-the-Bus” idea pleased at campaign success

Fourteen years ago a Transit operator wanted to do something to support those in need. Eroca Pellerin approached her managers with an idea to fill a city bus full of groceries to donate to the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre.

Eroca will be behind the wheel this year as “Rock 102’s Stuff-the-Bus” takes place at the Saskatoon Co-op Food Store at the Centre Mall.*

Saskatoon Transit serves 40,000 people every day from all parts of the city and in all walks of life, including some of our most vulnerable citizens.

Rawlco Radio has supported the Stuff the Bus initiative since the beginning, calling on the community to bring different goods to “stuff the bus” for this great cause.

Saskatoon Transit is so proud to have been a part of supplying over 124,714 kilograms (137 tons) of food to the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre over the last fourteen years.  It’s one of the many ways in which Saskatoon Transit supports the community.

*Centre Mall Co-op is not involved in the current labour dispute.
