BC Thanksgiving Food Drive

By Keith Yee in Community Events on September 11, 2017

We are very excited for the upcoming BC Thanksgiving Food Drive, held on Saturday 16 September 2017.

Started in 2009, the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive has collected more than 10 000 lbs of food each year in Richmond alone.  All food collected in Richmond goes to help Richmond residents going through financial difficulties.  Please visit their website to learn more about the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Volunteers are delivering those fliers and bags to homes across Richmond, and will pickup donations on Saturday 16 September.  If you would prefer to deliver the donations yourself, our warehouse will be open from 10 am to 2 pm to accept your generous gift.

Thank you to everyone who generously donates during the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive- we are grateful for your support of our neighbours in need.  And a huge thank you to the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive volunteers!
