This year's Stuff the Bus campaign from MyCityCare Okotoks is in full swing.

The annual initiative aims to ease the pressure of the back-to-school season for Foothills families in need by providing free backpacks full of school supplies.

Last year, the MyCityCare Okotoks team packed over 500 backpacks for Foothills students thanks to community donations and help from volunteers.

Donations can be made online, and there will be an in-person fundraiser this weekend.

Just like last year, they're also hosting a barbecue at Sobeys in Okotoks.

It's being held on Saturday, June 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
