Time to fill Nicky’s Red Wagon and help those in need

Nicky Grummett’s legacy of supporting the Barriere Food Bank continues

Nicky’s Red Wagon is back in town in time for the Christmas season and will once again be set up at Interior Savings Insurance in Barriere.

Nicky Grummett was a compassionate young man, who at the early age of five began collecting bottles and cans so he could give the money to families less privileged. He was often seen pulling a little red wagon loaded with cans and bottles he’d collected and would then sell to help those in need.

Sadly, Nicky passed away at the age of 15, but his legacy of caring for others lives on, and each year as the Christmas season approaches Nicky’s Little Red Wagon begins collecting unwrapped gifts and non-perishable food items for the Barriere Food Bank.

Currently, Barriere AG Foods are offering pre-packaged food hampers available for individuals or businesses to purchase and donate to the local food bank. The food-hampers are available for $5 each, and all hampers go to the Barriere Food Bank. If you are planning on purchasing hampers please note the program has started a little earlier this year so that volunteers can assemble the Christmas hamper boxes for area families sooner than has been done in the past.

Please support Nicky Grummet’s legacy of helping those in need by donating to the Barriere Food Bank Christmas hamper drive.
