BOUNTY ON THE BUS – Youth from the Mountainview Church were helping out at last Saturday’s Stuff the Bus event in the Real Canadian Superstore parking lot. The bounty, about 123 milk crates of non-perishable food, was taken to the Whitehorse Food Bank.

The annual food drive takes place this week, with local schools and the community involved.
