This Saturday November 6th! Drop off at Club Richelieu, Welland, 565 River Rd 9am-4pm.
Welland Food Drive
The people of Welland have been generous to help their neighbours in need for 28 years. Over the last couple of years, the need has never been higher. Our local food banks have seen significant increase in the number of Welland residents in need of help and food.
Last year, you were as generous as ever and donated $82,145 to help your neighbours when they needed it most. We are asking you to be generous again and donate financially online or by donating non-perishable food at Club Richelieu on Saturday, November 6. The money raised and food donated will be divided among the three food banks in Welland, The Hope Centre, Open Arms Mission and the Salvation Army who will distribute the food throughout the year.
Last year, 325,000lbs of food were distributed to Welland residents in need
We need your help to make sure that no one goes hungry. Your food donations are appreciated by the thousands of people who depend on our food banks, whether you donate non-perishable food items or financially. Because of greater buying power, food banks are able to stretch a dollar. Your donation of $1 can buy $3-4 dollars worth of food when the food banks leverage their buying power and get discounts from food suppliers.
