Non-perishable food items collected for food banks

When visiting elementary schools, the bus will welcome students onboard. Students will have the opportunity to become familiar with the layout of the RDN’s buses and learn the importance of bus safety. Last year, 15 schools got a visit from the bus.

All donations will be given to the Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes and the Parksville Food Bank.
