We would like to remind everyone that it is only 8 days left to Christmas! This means we will be sending our non-perishable foods to the food bank early next week. We are so pleased with everybody's participation this year!
However, the food banks are desperately needing more donations. Suggestions for non-perishable donations include: peanut butter, powdered or tinned milk, iron fortified formula, juices, tinned beans, fish and meats, tinned fruits and vegetables, soups and chunky soups. Or send a donation by cheque. That allows the Food Bank to buy food as needed – including fresh fruits and vegetables – throughout the year. In fact each dollar donated allows them to distribute $6 worth of food.
Here is the link to make a financial donation online to the food bank: http://bit.ly/9RuPzt
If you make an online donation, please let Kyra know and she will enter you into our Brio Gives Back Christmas raffle.
