Annual holiday toy drive aims to stuff five TTC buses
On December 3, 4 and 5, TTC employees will be holding the annual Stuff-the-Bus toy drive. This year, a total of five of the TTC’s 40-foot buses will be set up as drop-off stops for new, unwrapped toys, which will be donated to the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness.
What: TTC Stuff-the-Bus Toy Drive for the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness.
When: Friday, December 3, Saturday, December 4 and Sunday, December 5, from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. each day.
Where: A TTC bus will be parked at each of these five Walmart stores:
• 5995 Steeles Avenue East (Markham/Steeles).

TTC employees have been conducting a Stuff-the-Bus toy drive during the holiday season for the last four years. This is a labour of love for TTC Operator Kevin Kane and his team of volunteer Operators. They hope to raise $50,000 worth of donations this year. The crew is aiming to double its collection from the previous year.
