On May 6th from 10am to 5pm at 8 local grocery stores teams of volunteers will be asking shoppers to take a food bank bag and fill it with much needed food items to get us through the summer months ahead. Financial contributions will also be welcomed at storefronts or can be made via our website https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/11240
This food drive is so very important in stocking the shelves for the summer when demand is still high for our essential service. Last year we distributed over 12,000 hampers to needy families and individuals in our city and that was our busiest year to date in our 33 year history.
May 6th 2017 10:00am to 5:00pm
The eight participating stores will be:
Foodland – Manitou Crescent Amherstview
Metro – Gardiners Road
Grant’s No Frills – Division Street
Gord and Kim’s No Frills – Coverdale Drive
Loblaws – Princess Street
Loblaws – Midland Avenue
Freshco – Princess Street
Bennett’s Valu Mart – Gore Road.
We would like to acknowledge and thank the volunteers from RBC, Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston Waterfront Rotary, Loyalist Township Emergency Services and the 3rd year cadets from The Royal Military College for putting together the volunteer teams this year.
