‘Stuff the Bus’ is on now! Find out where we’ll be!

By Christie MannWednesday 22 Nov 2017

Stuff The Bus is an annual Christmas Appeal to help families and individuals in our local community, who are experiencing financial and emotional hardship at Christmas.

The heart of Stuff the Bus is to place dignity on parents by resourcing them with unwrapped gifts to give to their children on Christmas Day. We also provide Christmas food hampers to enable families and friends to celebrate around a Christmas meal.

This year, Westfield has jumped on board and given the big red bus pride of place at their below locations, making it easy for you to do your Christmas shopping and at the same time allow you to drop off and stuff the bus with your gift or non-perishable Christmas food items. Meet the 96five team and join the Christmas cheer as we see this bus fill up to help SE QLD families doing it a bit tough this Christmas.

Thursday, December 14 – WESTFIELD GARDEN CITY

We’re located in the lane way next to the cinema’s carpark, just before you get to the eateries which includes Nando’s, Grill’d and The Beach House! Broadcasting LIVE until 6pm – available to drop off your donations until 9pm.

Southside it is your turn! Come find us at Westfield Garden City, and drop off your gifts for those in need in Brisbane this Christmas! More details: http://bit.ly/2ydxjF4

We’ll also have Timothy Charles and Arthur Muhl broadcasting their shows across the day and a special Luke & Susie apprearance at Westfield Garden City on the Thursday to wrap up this year’s stuff the bus!

In 2016, Stuff the Bus was able to contribute over 10,000 individually wrapped toy packs and 6,400 Christmas food hampers to local families as well as to community organisations for their clients.
