Volunteers make ready for Saturday's Food Bank Collection Day

Ready and Waiting for a fill up and pick up!
The annual BC Thanksgiving Food Drive takes place on Saturday

The bags have been delivered and the collection routes all mapped out, as volunteers in Prince Rupert prepare to make their rounds on Saturday, collecting Bags of Donated goods for the Prince Rupert and area Salvation Army Food Bank.

With over 80 volunteers participating in this years Food Drive, organizers will be hoping to top last years bounty of community giving which saw residents of the region supply more than 5,300 pounds of canned goods and non perishable goods.

The generosity of the Prince Rupert area was measured in
supplies last year as the Food Bank volunteers unloaded over
5,300 pounds of donated goods

This years collection will see Food Drive volunteers hit the road Saturday morning with residents asked to have their brown bags out on their doorsteps and in view of the street by 9AM.

Speaking of Volunteers you can never have too many, and for those looking to lend a hand this year, you can send them a Direct Message through their Facebook feed.

Should you not be home, or wish to just drop off your own goods, you can take your donations to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Prince George Street just off of Prince Rupert Boulevard. 

Organizers will be accepting those walk in donations between 9 AM and Noon.

You can also drop off donations to the Food Drive this Saturday
at the Christ of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints on Prince George Street

Organizers will also arrange for a pick up for those that may be missed Saturday

There is also an online donation platform for those who wish to participate

You can get a sense of all that is involved in the Food Bank Collection Day program from the Groups Facebook page, which includes a number of photos of their previous work and thanks to their partners to help with the Drive each year.
