Emergency Services Food Drive
The 2017 Emergency Services Food Drive was held on Tuesday, September 12.
There were several purposes of the Food Drive. The first was to draw awareness to local food security issues, and to bring awareness to hunger within our community. The second was to provide help to the food bank in helping them help those who need a hand. The third was to foster a feeling of community and teamwork between emergency services crews, community groups and individuals.
This year the event was the most successful it’s ever been – Over 12,000 lbs of food were donated and over $5200 raised for the Food Bank. There were over 300 volunteers involved; donating their time and energies to the drive.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in making this event a huge success.
