November 9, 2015 –
Kingston Transit once again will be supporting The Salvation Army Community and Family Services' annual Christmas food drive. Non-perishable food items can be dropped off on buses until Dec. 18.
"We've been assisting The Salvation Army's Food Drive since 2004 and we are more than pleased to participate in this annual community initiative. We want to make it easy for riders to contribute canned goods, baby food and formula, and personal hygiene items. Simply place your donated items in the blue or grey bins located at the front of the bus. We'll take care of delivering all donations to The Salvation Army," says Jeremy DaCosta, manager, Kingston Transit.
Frontenac fans: want to help staff a bus?
Residents and Kingston Frontenac fans are also being invited to help STUFF A BUS with non-perishable food items in support of The Salvation Army Food Drive. Look for the Kingston Transit bus parked in front of the Rogers K-Rock Centre from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13 – the Frontenacs are hosting the Hamilton Bulldogs at 7 p.m.
The Salvation Army welcomes the continued support from Kingston Transit and its riders. It is anticipated there will be an even greater need this year and The Salvation Army's goal is to see that no one in the Kingston area goes without adequate food. Last year, The Salvation Army assisted over 6,340 households in the Kingston area with basic needs and food.
