The Amazing Winter Food Drive!

Comments Off on The Amazing Winter Food Drive!

As the Winter Food Drive wraps up, we are absolutely astounded by how the community came together to support your neighbours in need!  Your holiday spirit and eagerness to make a difference in the lives of people that are hungry was nothing short of incredible!

All of your efforts raised $270,000 & 250,000 lbs. of food!

From the food drives…

To generous financial donations…

To even some really creative fundraising ideas…like Ferrero holding a product sale in the lobby of their building. It sold out quickly and had a line up right out the door!

It’s amazing what a group of generous and community minded people can achieve when they get together!  

You even booked the sort room for every session available to help sort the groceries coming in from the drive!
