FALL 2013 - THE BURKS FALLS & DISTRICT FOOD BANK REPORT

The Food Bank Drive for 2013 is upon us again and your association is a strong supporter of the Burk’s Falls and District Food Bank. Four drop off locations have been set up as of the writing of this article – Ahmic Marine, 91 Miller Street, 705-387-3490 or email at ahmicmarine@gmail.com; The Magnetawan Home Building Centre, Burrows and Church Street East, 705-387-3988; Magnetawan Bait and Tackle, Highways 124 and 520, 705-387-3361, and Port Carmen Marina, 3077 Highway 520, 705-387-4200; 705-387-3894.

Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and sharing and what better way to celebrate than by giving a hand up to those who are less fortunate. Usage at the food bank has increased by 30% over last year and the need for donations is critical. You can help by

a) filling a sturdy box with the overflow from your cottage pantry and delivering it to any one of these participating convenient locations

b) Or, if the cupboard is bare, please write a cheque to the Food Bank. Donations of $ 10.00 or more will receive a receipt via the mail.

The cheque can be delivered to any of the four locations, or mailed to the Burks Falls and District Food Bank, Post Office Box 694, Burk's Falls, ON P0A 1C0, Attention: Christine Lauffer

The food bank is located at the corner of Ontario and Yonge streets in Burk’s Falls and is accessible from the lower level (Yonge Street). If it is easier to deliver right to the food bank, their hours are every Tuesday from 1pm to 3pm and every Friday from 9:30am to 11:30am. The phone number is 705-382-3989.

Thanks in advance for your help and thoughtfulness. Together, our CWA members can make a big difference.
