Scouts Canada is an organization where children discover the best in themselves and each other. The Annual Scouts, Metro, Purolator Food Drive in support of the Ottawa Food Bank helps accomplish just that, as these young volunteers with big hearts head to local Metro grocery stores and encourage shoppers to donate.
Over the course of a few hours at 12 Metro grocery store locations, our amazing Scouts Canada supporters collected a combined total of $8,877 and 4,700 lbs of food!
As the Scouts were helping Metro shoppers become donors, amazing volunteers from Purolator were driving around in three Purolator trucks to each of the grocery store locations collecting the donations. These volunteers delivered the donations to the Ottawa Food Bank warehouse where another group of Scouts were sorting donations as they came in!
Thank you to Scouts Canada, Metro, and Purolator for your incredible continued support.
Thank you to all who donated during the Scouts, Metro, Purolator Food Drive. We truly appreciate your support – as do the community food programs and their clients for whom we provide.
