|Generous Rupert residents once|
again left their donations on
their porch on Saturday
as the annual Thanksgiving Food
Drive made collections in town
Volunteers had some great weather to make their rounds on Saturday as the annual Prince Rupert Thanksgiving Food Drive made the tour of the region and as they did they collected a good volume of goods for the annual event.
In a Social media post following a busy day of collecting and sorting, the organizers of the Food Drive announced that Saturday's haul brought in over 5,3000 pounds of goods.
Among those lending a hand once again this year was DP World, with the Fairview Terminal operator donating 25 collapsable crates for use at the sorting station, DP World employees also gave of their time this year to help in the program.
There may be a few Prince Rupert residents who weren't aware of the weekend Food Drive or didn't get their bags to their stoops in time for pick up, if so, you can still do your part, dropping off your bag of goods at either Canada Safeway or Save On Foods.
You can get some insight into what it takes to pull it all together from the Food Drive Facebook page.
The Saturday Food Bank Drive wasn't the only event held in aid of the Prince Rupert area Salvation Army, as we outlined on Saturday Prince Rupert's Harley Riders took to the streets of the city in their Annual Toy Run, with proceeds destined for the local Christmas program.
