Guelph, Ont. December 10, 2015 – On Saturday, December 12, the City’s police, firefighters and paramedics will be collecting non-perishable food and cash donations in support of the Guelph Food Bank.

The fourth annual ‘Stuff an Ambulance’ event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Guelph Zehrs located at 1045 Paisley Road.

This year, organizers are hoping to collect more than 8,000 pounds of food to meet a four-year accumulation goal of 50,000 pounds.

“Guelph is a caring and generous community and this annual event is one way for our emergency first responders to give back to the community we serve,” says Leanne Swantko, deputy chief of Guelph-Wellington Emergency Medical Service, adding, “We are excited to see how many emergency vehicles will be stuffed with much-needed food this year.”

Emergency first responders, who volunteer to participate in this event, will also provide tours of the police cruisers, ambulances and fire apparatus on site.
