At the end of September, the Creston Valley Thunder Cats hosted the eighth annual Stuff the Bus food drive, which raised $1,300 and a busload of food for the Creston Valley Gleaners Society food bank.

All of the Junior B hockey team’s members volunteered, collecting food and cash donations at Extra Foods and Overwaitea Foods, which Alec Wilkinson, McConnell Kimmett, Carson Cartwright and Jackson Bruce-Fuoco delivered to food bank co-ordinator Yvonne Harland and president Elaine Keeling.

“We’re very appreciative of the community’s support,” said head coach Jeff Dubois. “It’s a good experience for our guys, getting to help out and be part of helping provide meals for folks who need it.”
