In Chilliwack, crews were out at the Save-On Foods in Salish Plaza and Vedder, and at Cooper’s Food in Garrison. All items go to the Salvation Army’s food bank to help feed those in need.

The Stuff the Cruiser event has become a major contributor for the food banks which are administered by the Salvation Army in Chilliwack.

In 2013, the event resulted in donations totalling more than $23,000 and a total of 18,413 pounds of food.
