South Country’s Food Bank drive

On Oct. 15, the annual Food Bank Drive will be held in the South Country.

On Saturday, Oct. 15, the annual Food Bank Drive will be held in the South Country covering the communities of Jaffray, Baynes Lake, Wardner, Grasmere, Elko and Galloway.  Pick-ups of donations of food items will begin at 10 a.m. on the Saturday and continue for two hours until 12 p.m.

Persons wishing to make donations will find in their mail boxes a flyer and a plastic bag which explains what is needed at the food banks.  Items for donations can be put in the plastic bag and left at the front door of the household for pick-up on Saturday.  Pick-ups will be made by the Cubs and Scouts and adult drivers.

The donations will be sorted at the chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Jaffray.  All donations will be taken to the Cranbrook Food Bank. The communities of the South Country have been very generous with food donations in the past.  This is always very much appreciated.
