Help Stuff the Bus December 10, 2010

For the last two years, Washougal High School has joined Camas High School in a friendly rivalry to see which school can gather the most food and toys for needy families on one day. Last year, Washougal High beat Camas High, but the real winners were the families in need who live in Camas and Washougal. The East County Family Resource Center of Children's Home Society, Camas Treasure House and other charities that provide food and household supplies to needy families joyfully accepted over 70,000 lbs of goods donated by our communities last December.

This year, Stuff the Bus will happen on December 10. When Washougal High School ASB leaders and students show their community spirit, it is enough to inspire all of us to join this great cause. Community members are invited to drop off non-perishable canned or boxed foods, household supplies and unwrapped toys at any Washougal school. The big yellow bus will be parked in front of Washougal High School all day, and this is where the action is the most exciting. The ASB is also accepting cash donations which will be used for purchasing additional food and household supply items throughout the day.

Tonight, Wednesday December 8, 2010, the WHS ASB students will be at McDonalds from 4:00pm-7:00pm collecting donations

Thursday December 9th- the Stuff the Bus team will be at the wrestling match at WHS from 5:30-8:00. And the Camas/Washougal Grocery Outlet from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Friday December 10th- The Stuff the Bus Team will be at Pioneer Square promoting stuff the bus from 6:00am-7:00am, then at WHS all day collecting donations.

Please join us for a post-Stuff the Bus party at Exterior Wood from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Stuff the Bus is a program that was created by the Camas Washougal Business Alliance (CWBA). The CWBA is made up of local business owners who strive to have a positive impact on the well-being of the community. The CWBA invites the public to attend the official weigh-in of the buses at 5:00 p.m. on December 10, at Exterior Wood in Washougal. Parking is available in the BiMart parking lot across the street. There will be refreshments as well as a band, and Santa may even stop in for a surprise visit! Many thanks to the CWBA, to district staff and to community members who will help Washougal High win that beautiful Stuff the Bus trophy one more time!
