Stuff the Truck
It is with great excitement to share the news that 89.7 Juice FM will be returning to Save on Foods in Duncan for our Annual Stuff The Truck event December 2nd – December 6th, and we’re bringing back our Pallet Challenge!
Stuff the Truck is Juice FM and Vista Radio’s week to give back to the Cowichan Valley and use the power of radio to raise food and cash donations benefiting our local food banks in Duncan, Chemainus, Lake Cowichan, Crofton, and Ladysmith. Last year our generous donors purchased 128 pallets helping raise over $300,000 and smashing the previous years record! With our communities support the shelves were stocked for the year! This year we want to ensure they stay filled so we’re opening up our Pallet Challenge early to anyone that wants to get in on the action ahead of December! Oh and did we mention we want to tell the Cowichan Valley that YOU’RE involved? That’s right we’re amping up our airwaves in November with all our early birds who purchase a pallet now with jock talk, name mentions, social media and we’ll add your logo (or name) to our website for Stuff The Truck! If you so kindly would like to pre purchase a pallet, Juice FM will come to your business/home and accept your donation via Facebook Live! Like last year we invite you down to Save On Foods anytime from December 2nd – December 6th to have your picture taken with the pallet for our social media (Facebook & Instagram).
What is the Pallet Challenge?
Great question! Derik and his team at Save On Foods have received a list from the Basket Society that is compiled of their ‘most used’ items. These items can include flour, toilet paper, powdered milk, canned goods, toiletries etc…basic household items that some families struggle to afford. All of these goods are packed onto a pallet, which when fully loaded weighs 1,000lbs!
Businesses, local organizations, and private donors are invited to step up to accept our Pallet Challenge and purchase a pallet (or more) at a cost of $500 per pallet. You can even challenge your friends or other businesses! We’ve attached a Payment form if you wish to donate.
If you wish to donate, please contact us or fill out this form and we’ll contact you.
