Thank You BC Thanksgiving Food Drive 2019!

By Hajira Hussain in Donation on September 30, 2019

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated to or volunteered with the 2019 BC Thanksgiving Food Drive – this year’s drive was a great success! Together, the community raised over 10,500 lbs of quality non-perishable food for our neighbours in need.

Volunteers from all over Richmond helped to promote the food drive and collected food and monetary donations. This effort was part of the larger, province-wide food drive known as the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Thank you to our donors – Your generous support will provide grocery assistance for Richmond families through our weekly grocery distributions and school meals for Richmond students through our school meal program.

Thank you to BC Thanksgiving Food Drive organizers, particularly the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Richmond, and all the volunteers, for your hard work that made this event so successful.
