To the Editor
Recently the Minden Food Bank and the 4Cs Food Bank jointly completed a new fall food drive together. Businesses were canvassed in both communities with the food going to each community separately to eliminate extra moving and distributing of the donated foods. Businesses were asked to make cheques payable to the 4Cs because Judy McDuff offered to handle the tax receipts for these donations. The funds collected were split between the two food banks.
We both feel that this food drive was very successful since it was our first drive together. We are considering a spring food drive when both food banks face the challenge of lower donations at that time of year. More information will be provided when a decision is made.
For now we want to acknowledge and thank all of the individual donations to this drive. Further to this Minden Food Bank would like to thank Trevor Clement from Highland Eave Trough and Siding for his donation of his cube van for us to collect the food donations. This community has so many individuals who are always willing to help when asked.
Minden Food Bank would like to thank businesses for their wonderful donations to the food drive. These donations will help us to continue to feed those in need until the next major drive which will be Christmas. Also thanks are extended to the local camps and lodges for donating product left from the summer.
We are so fortunate to live in Haliburton County where there are so many charitable people and businesses who continue to help those in need.
Minden Food Bank and the 4 c’s food bank thanks everyone for a very successful food drive and to all of the volunteers who helped canvass and collect all of the donated goods.
