Banff-based Brewster Travel will ‘stuff a bus’ again this year to support local families in need.

Stuff the Bus’ is a campaign that collects donations for families who can use a little help this holiday season. Brewster has partnered with charitable organizations in Calgary, Banff and Canmore to share in the holiday spirit of giving. Over the first week of December, Brewster team members will be welcoming contributions from residents to fill a full-size Brewster motorcoach with useful donations.

“Brewster is proud to be a part of the Bow Valley and Calgary community” said Michael Hannan, President, Brewster Travel Canada. “Our ‘Stuff the Bus’ initiative is a great way to get involved and support local residents over the holiday season.”
