Fifth annual ‘Stuff an Emergency Vehicle’ event happening December 17

Guelph, Ont. December 12, 2016 – On Saturday, December 17, the City’s police, firefighters and paramedics will be collecting non-perishable food and cash donations in support of the Guelph Food Bank.

The fifth annual ‘Stuff an Emergency Vehicle’ 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 10,500 pounds of food. Since 2012, more than 50,000 pounds and almost $14,000 in cash has been collected.

“Guelph is a caring and generous city and this annual food drive is one way for our emergency first responders to give back to the community we serve,” says Leanne Swantko, deputy chief of Guelph-Wellington Paramedic Service. “We are excited to see how many emergency vehicles will be stuffed with much-needed food that will go to individuals and families in need.”

Emergency first responders, who volunteer their time at this event, will be on hand to help you have a close up look at the police cruisers, ambulances and fire apparatus on site.
