United Way Northumberland and Local Police Services are inviting companies, clubs, and teams to participate in the “Stuff the Bus” Challenge for a chance to win a delicious BBQ lunch, prepared by members of Local Police Services.

To enter the challenge, participants are encouraged to record a video of their collection drive or donation drop-off and share it on social media, tagging United Way Northumberland. Connect with United Way on Instagram and Twitter (@nlanduw) and Facebook (@NorthumberlandUnitedWay). The winning group will be rewarded with a BBQ lunch, cooked by members of Local Police Services.

“We can’t wait to watch the creative videos you’ll share,” says Maggie Darling, Acting Executive Director, United Way Northumberland. “By capturing your collection drive or donation drop-off in these videos, you not only showcase your dedication but also encourage others to get involved.”
