November 18, 2013
On Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, TTC employees will be holding the annual Stuff-the-Bus Toy Drive at participating Walmart stores across Toronto. This year, a total of seven of the TTC’s 12-metre buses will be set up as drop-off stops for new, unwrapped toys, which will be donated to the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness.

TTC employees have been conducting a Stuff-the-Bus toy drive during the holiday season for the last seven years. This is a labour of love for TTC Operator Kevin Kane and his team of volunteer Operators. Last year’s drive gave a Christmas gift to more than 500 families with children. This year, the group hopes to raise more than $70,000 worth of donations. To date, the toy drive has helped more than 3,000 families, and 10,000 children, have a Christmas. The drive has collected $150,000 worth of toys and expects to break the $200,000 mark this holiday season.
