Onwards and literally upwards

We have some exciting news! We are making great strides to finish moving our operation to the upper level of what was originally the Glen Orchard Community Centre.

With the financial assistance of our wonderful benefactors, we have purchased new shelving, new and more efficient freezers and we are setting up an office to better serve our community. Also, with the help of the MLA and their food drive to benefit the West Muskoka Food Bank and the constant support from our fellow community members, that new shelving with be overflowing with donated items.

But those donations don’t last long and we are continually in need of your support. The need increases each year and we are forever grateful for your assistance in helping our fellow residents. We are working on a new way to accept online donations to allow for one-time or recurring contributions on a monthly basis and we hope to have that in place very soon.

As always, we are constantly looking for volunteers to help us during the times the Food Bank is open to our clients. Those times are Thursday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and Friday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00 am. If you have a few hours to spare on either of those days, please email us. Many hands make light work. We will also be looking for assistance during our Christmas Food Drive – details to follow soon.

We truly appreciate all of the assistance we have received to date and we will continue to do our best to make sure our fellow community members feel supported in every way we can.
