As the holidays quickly approach, the food banks across the City are in need of food donations.
There are a number of locations within the community that will accept your generous contributions to help the needy in and around the community. The bins are located at my ward office in the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, Sobeys, Brown’s Your Independent Grocer, at Giant Tiger in the Jackson Trails Plaza, and at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Stittsville Food Bank will also accept monetary donations that can be forwarded to: Care of, Stittsville Food Bank, PO Box 878, Stittsville, ON, K2S 1B1. If you need assistance, I encourage you to contact the Stittsville Food Bank at (613) 831-0451.
Furthermore, in co-operation with the Ottawa Food Bank, the 2012 OC Transpo/Loblaw ® Annual Christmas Food Drive is a special event that marks the 28th year of the annual partnership with Loblaws ®, Real Canadian Superstores ®, and selected Your Independent Grocers™. I invite you to get in the true holiday spirit by volunteering to accept cash and food donations on Saturday, December 8 between 9am and 6pm at any of the 19 participating Loblaws, Superstores and Your Independent Grocers stores across the city.
