Just a reminder of our Fall food drive to help others not so fortunate and needing help. Our area is no different – we have many families facing their own hardships and we are asking you again this year to open your hearts, pocket books and larders as you are closing your cottage and have left over items in your kitchen. Please think of the “needy” and drop off food items or your cheque.
To make this easy for everyone, four drop off locations have been set up and food and cash/cheque donations are welcome anytime between now and Saturday October 14th, as follows:
· Ahmic Marine, 91 Miller Street, Magnetawan, 705-387-3490
· Magnetawan Home Building Centre, Burrows and Church Street East, 705-387-3988
· Magnetawan Bait and Tackle, Highways 124 and 520, 705-387-3361
· Port Carmen Marina, 3077 Highway 520, 705-387-4200
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 over last year and the need for donations is critical. You can help by filling a sturdy box with the overflow from your cottage pantry and delivering it to any one of these participating convenient locations. 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. If you prefer to mail your cheque, the address and contact numbers are below. Thanks in advance for your help and thoughtfulness. Together, our CWA members DO make a big difference.
In case you have food to deliver and/or need to contact the food bank, here is the information you need to know:
· Address: 205 Ontario Street, Lower level, Burk’s Falls ON 705-382-3989;
Hours: Tuesday 1 -3pm; Friday 9:30 - 11:30am (closed
if either day is a statutory holiday(
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give. It is truly appreciated.
