Food Drive This Saturday
Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall proclaims Sept.9th as Food Drive Day in Prince George
Prince George, B.C – This Saturday has been officially declared BC Thanksgiving Food Drive in Prince George, with the hope of collecting 20 thousand pounds of food to fill the food bank.
Last year, the food drive collected 14 thousand pounds of food in Prince George.
You may have already received a bag in which to put non perishable food items. All residents need to do is put their donation in the bag, and leave it on their front step. Volunteers will be out on Saturday from 9 am to noon to collect the donations.
Originally launched by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, this year the drive is woeking with the Interfaith Council making this a non-denominational event.
All food collected in Prince George stays in Prince George to be distributed through the Salvation Army. Approximately 3000 people in Prince George rely on the Salvation Army food bank each month
