Location:  Syncrude Sport & Wellness Centre

The FMYSA is proud to announce its first ever "Stuff a Bus Event" at the Syncrude Sport & Wellness Centre on Saturday, November 9th, 2013 from 9:00am-3:00pm.  We are looking to donate items to the Food Bank and the Centre of Hope.  We want to fill the bus to its maximum capacity.  We ask you to please donate the following items:


For the Food Bank: It is really a matter of the donor's preference.  We require both food and money to help us fulfill our mission and what we like to think of as "helping people help themselves".  We are able to buy more with the cash because we can purchase food in larger quantities and usually at discounted prices.  100% of donated money goes to the operation of the Fort McMurray Food Bank. But we won’t turn anyway away with a giving heart.


For the Centre of Hope: A new or cleaned out back pack with items such as, toilet paper roll, hats, toques, mittens, gloves, scarf, hand warmers, tooth brush, tooth paste, Mr. Noodle, juice packs, candles, etc.


We ask you to come down and donate and help reach our goal to help those in need.  So they can have the necessities of life.  The key concept of the program is to bring together as many people as possible through the FMYSA and its philosophy of inclusion. The Stuff a Bus advocates exchanges and sharing human values and, of course, promotes the pleasure of practicing our world loved virtue of giving and generosity. 


We hope to see you down there and helping us out.
