Local generosity making food bank possible

It’s time once again to say a heartfelt “thank you” to all the wonderful supporters of the food bank.

To the Editor:

It’s time once again to say a heartfelt “thank you” to all the wonderful supporters of the food bank.

At this time I would like to note the contributions of Shannon Forner of Valu Plus as well as those of Sharon Finch of V&S Variety. Both ladies’ initiatives raised a substantial amount of food for the food bank in September, when we could not open due to a shortage of food. The supplies provided by Shannon and Sharon will certainly help in the next while.

Valley First Credit Union also provided much support to the food bank, through their organization. The shopping cart competitioin is still ongoing – please continue to fill it, as it is a huge help to us – and of course the food bank account where one can deposit a “spare” five or 10 dollar bill.

Tax receipts for this will be issued at income tax time.

An extended thanks to everyone for their continuing support. We can’t do this without you.

Ingrid Percival, Cawston Food Bank
