Our Business Cares Food Drive kicked off in amazing fashion this past weekend with a successful Grocery Store Weekend.
We continually are overwhelmed by the generosity of Londoners, who came out in droves on December 1st and 2nd to donate cash and non-perishable food items to our over 600 volunteers, spread out over 24 grocery stores throughout the city.
We've published a few photos on our Facebook page from the activity at various locations.
This is just the start of the campaign! There are still plenty of opportunities for you to support the cause:
- Register your business today (just sign up and collect donations -- we'll come to you to pick them up!);
- Make a donation online;
- Sign up as a volunteer; and/or
- Come out to one of our events, like the Be a Fan, Bring a Can nights at the Budweiser Gardens or productions of The Grand Theatre's A Christmas Carol, and make a donation.
Whether it's one can or 1,000; whether you can spare $1 or you can give more, every donation adds up and makes a difference for the London Food Bank and the people and agencies its supports.
Thank you again, London -- and below is a photo showing just some of the food collected this past weekend during Grocery Store Weekend.
