South end food bank a success

  • May. 10, 2006 5:00 p.m.

Submitted by Elizabeth Bullbrook–The Food For All Project was a great success last month. There was an abundance of donated food from Queen Charlotte and Skidegate. We also received generous cash donations from individuals, the Thrift Store and the Skidegate Fire Department. A number of volunteers worked hard to make up individualized hampers for recipients based on their family size and special dietary needs.
If you would like to register to receive food you must call Memory at 559-4495 on Monday May 15 between 11am and 3pm. Once you are registered you can pick up your food at the Safe House in Skidegate between 11am – 1pm on Wednesday May 17. If you live in Queen Charlotte you can pick up your food at the Teen Centre from 1pm – 3pm on the 17th.
Howa to all who donated food and cash. Also a heartfelt howa to all the volunteers who worked so hard to help others in need in our communities.
