Our haul this week was a wee bit on the light side. We brought in 85 cans of fruit for the Food Bank. If we’re going to blow the lid off this challenge, we’ll need to do better.
With 8 weeks left, at this pace we’d bring in a harvest of 1,295 cans.
Remember why we’re doing this.
Inflation has driven food prices way up. The tight rental market has sent rents through the roof. There are a lot of people in our community who are struggling to put food on the table. There are a lot of people, with full-time jobs, who, because of these sky high prices, just can’t make ends meet.
The need is great. So, we need to step up and make a difference.
How can you help?
Easy, bring a can or five to church on Sunday.
You can also drop cans off at the church office Tuesdays or Thursdays between 9:30am and 12:00pm
Or, if you don’t want to shop, you can donate via e-transfer to @firstname.lastname@example.org or you can donate online in the form below.
Spread the Word.
This week, if you find a really good price on canned fruit, put it on the church’s Facebook page with the hashtag #pricepick.
