Grocery Store Weekend an Incredible Start to the Campaign

News Date

The Business Cares Food Drive got off to an overwhelmingly successful start this past weekend, thanks to the generosity of Londoners and the support of 17 stores and over 350 volunteers!

In fact, over the weekend of Dec. 3rd and 4th, we raised 87,772 pounds of food -- a marked increase over the 55,000 we raised last year and a number that exceeded our goal of 75,000 pounds for the weekend. We thought that was going to be tough, but we've learned to never underestimate the generosity of Londoners!

In addition to the food, we raised an additional $17,180 this weekend. It was an amazing start to the campaign and we appreciate your support.

If you haven't registered your business yet, there's still time! And there are more opportunities to support Business Cares, such as the Be a Fan, Bring a Can events at the Budweiser Gardens and Bell Media's upcoming Day of Giving (more details coming soon!).
