We are busy pulling together the last pieces needed to make our Christmas Food Drive a success for another year. The Food Bank will be closed on the evening of Thursday, December 13th to allow us to set up for the drive on Friday.
The doors to the Food Bank will be open on Friday, December 14th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm so families can come to pick up the items for their Christmas dinners, shop for other needed items as well as pick out a few toys for the kids.
We are continually asking for donations, not just for the Christmas drive but for the year round success of the food bank and our ability to provide a warm and welcoming place for our community members. With thirteen percent of Muskoka residents living below the poverty level, the need is always there.
If you would like any more information about the Christmas Food Drive or the Food Bank in general, feel free to call our Operations Manager, Kristen Thompson, at 705-646-3997.
