Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and sharing and what better way to celebrate than by giving a hand up to those who are less fortunate. Usage at the food bank has increased over last year and the need for donations is critical. You can help by filling a sturdy box with the overflow from your cottage pantry and delivering it to any one of these participating convenient locations. Or, if the cupboard is bare, please write a cheque to the Food Bank. Donations of $10.00 or more will receive a receipt via the mail. If you prefer to mail your cheque, the address and contact numbers are below.
