Donations down by 50 per cent
This past Saturday was our annual Thanks for Giving Food Drive, which saw significantly lower than usual results. The beautiful weather and the fact that Thanksgiving is here earlier than usual may have had an impact on the numbers.
This year’s food drive raised only 18,555 pounds of food and under $1,000, which half of what was raised during last year’s event.
If you would rather make a monetary donation, a secure donation can also be made online or by giving us a call at 613-745-7001
Even though the donations aren’t as great as we need, we would still like to thank our amazing volunteers and grocery store partners. Also thank you to everyone who has already donated.
