BC Thanksgiving Food Drive

By Keith Yee in Donation on October 14, 2016

We are so grateful for the outpouring of support we received from our community during the 2016 BC Thanksgiving Food Drive on Saturday 17 September 2016.

_dsc7403Thank you- to the hundreds of people who volunteered to deliver fliers, picked up donations, and sorted food; to the Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter-Day Saints that organized the event; and, most importantly, to the thousands of households that donated food.

We are overwhelmed by your support.

This year’s Food Drive collected almost 10 000 lbs of food that will go directly to helping Richmond residents experiencing financial difficulty.

_dsc7420Thank you to the donors and volunteers who made this success possible- we couldn’t help the more than 1400 people each week who need food assistance without your support.
