TTC employees host annual "Stuff-the-Bus" toy drive,
at Toronto Walmarts, December 2, 3 and 4

TTC employees are holding their annual Stuff-the-Bus toy drive, Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4, at participating Walmart Canada stores across Toronto. This year, they’ll park six of the TTC’s 40-foot buses for people to drop off new, unwrapped toys. The employees are donating the toys to the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness.

The Stuff-the-Bus weekend toy drive officially kicks off on Q107’s Derringer in the Morning, from 5:30 until 10 a.m., Friday, December 2. They’ll park a TTC bus outside the Corus Quay Building at 25 Dockside Drive (near Queens Quay East and Lower Jarvis Street) to accept donations. The employees will then park the bus in front of the Walmart store at 1900 Eglinton Avenue East east of Pharmacy Avenue from noon to 6 p.m., to accept donations.

The employees will park TTC buses at each of these six Walmart stores from about 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4.

TTC operator Kevin Kane and his team of volunteer TTC employees have been conducting a Stuff-the-Bus toy drive during the holiday season for the last five years. Last year’s drive gave Christmas gifts to more than 600 families with children. Kevin and his team hope to once again raise more than $50,000 worth of donations in 2011.
