Thank You once again, Port Colborne! The community has shown again that Port Colborne is a city that cares. Together we collected nearly $3,000 in cash donations, and over 32,000 lbs (16 tons) of food for the Port Cares Reach Out Food Center. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors, we have once again provided much needed support for our community food bank.
Once again, we provide our heartfelt thanks to the clergy and congregation of the Christian Life Assembly Church for providing us with a base of operations for the drive. The use of their building gave us a facility to store, sort, and pack our food for the day. As always they proved to be gracious hosts and we are indebted to them for their continued support.
We also received donations of much needed supplies and services from many businesses. A big thank you to the following organizations for their continued support: Brent & Jenny's No Frills, Fontaine Transport, Sobeys, Modern Waste Corporation, and Staples. Local newspapers, radio stations, and businesses all provided us with invaluable advertising in the weeks leading up to the drive. Please join us in thanking these businesses for their continued generosity in support of community events.
We truly appreciate the support the community has shown for this event. We couldn't do it without you! We will see you all again next year!
