It never fails to amaze me how wonderfully generous the people in Barriere and surrounding area are, especially at this time of year.
The Barriere and District Food Bank was beginning to run low on food supplies, and we were beginning to think the Christmas Hamper would not be as large as we had hoped.
The giving started in September with the Toy Run sponsored by the Morris’s, and has continued with personal donations, the wonderful community lunch put on by the Pentecostal Christian Life Assembly, the Breakfast with Santa and the list goes on and on.
I am sure if I try to thank each group individually, I would inadvertently miss someone, so the Barriere and District Food Bank Society would like to wish a merry Christmas and the very best in the New Year to each and every one of you. Many, many thanks to everyone for their continued support and donations.
BUT, and there always seems to be a but… the food bank is always in need of donations, especially cereal, peanut butter, canned fruit and baby food.
The food bank is open every Wednesday, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon, and all orders are processed at that time. If you are not able to pick up your order in person, it can be delivered.
The number to call is 250-672-0029, and if a delivery is required please leave a message and we will get back to you. Should you require assistance before the above noted times, just phone and leave a message and someone will get back to you.
Merry Christmas to all!
