December 4, 2015 - Thunder Bay Transit and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 966 are teaming up to spread goodwill in the community with the 21st Annual Santa Bus Food Drive in support of the Thunder Bay Food Bank.

From Monday, Dec. 7 until Sunday, Dec. 13, residents are invited to drop off dry goods on any City Transit bus. Santa Bus, in aid of the Thunder Bay Food Bank, is an opportunity for Transit employees to join the public to bring joy and happiness to others this holiday season.

The Santa Bus will also be available to receive donations at the Arthur St. Metro Grocery Store on Saturday, Dec. 12 from 10 am until 6 pm, and at the River St. location on Sunday, Dec. 13 from noon until 8 pm.

Thunder Bay Food Bank supplies emergency help to people in need, and when possible, helps other organizations with food supply.  The need is always greater in the winter and especially over the holidays.

The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 966 and Thunder Bay Transit has served the community of Thunder Bay with safe, reliable, economical, and enviro-friendly Transit service for over 120 years.
