Santa Claus high fives Jose Valdes-Rodriguez from John Stubbs Elementary school on a BC Transit bus earlier this week. As part of BC Transit’s annual Stuff the Bus campaign, students from John Stubbs, Wishart, Happy Valley and Sangster elementary schools collected more than 2,000 non-perishable food items, $150 and even some toys to be donated to the Goldstream Food Bank. On Tuesday, Santa’s helpers, including Mrs. Claus, Elf and a gingerbread man loaded the donations onto a bus and students were invited to see the fruits of their labour.
