Local food drive runs September 26th to October 12th
To the Editor:
For the past three years, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Slave Lake area have been running a door to door food drive every September.
Sadly, because of COVID 19, we will have to change some of our collection practices for this year – but we hope to return to normal next year. Instead of delivering bags to homes and then collecting them, we are only able to encourage the wonderful people who usually leave out food donations for us to collect to make monetary donations to their local food bank.
In Slave Lake, we ask people who would like to help feed the hungry in their community to either drop off a cheque directly to the office at the Friendship Centre or mail cheques to The Slave Lake Food Bank, Native Friendship Centre, Slave Lake, AB 416 6 Ave. NE, Slave Lake, T0G 2A2.
The campaign runs until October 12th, which is Thanksgiving – we are eager to give thanks for what we have by sharing with those who are without. Thank you in advance for your participation.
