Thorold Community-wide Food Drive | June 14

Thorold Community Wide Food Drive

Last year the churches in Thorold produced a large scale food drive for Community Care collecting over 4,000 pounds of food. The need is even greater this year and so the local campaign organizers plan to repeat it.  Because of gathering restrictions due to physical distrancing rules during the Covid-19 crisis, the Drive will run in a different format.

Thorold residents are being asked to participate in the Food Drive by volunteering to act as a drop-off point and handing out flyers in their neighbourhood, the week before June 14.  The flyers will indicate items Community Care needs and your willingness to be the drop off point in your neighbourhood.

The plan is to get neighbours to drop off food on the drop-off point porches across our community.  A volunteer from the drop-off location point would collect the food and deliver the foods to Community Care or the campaign volunteers can offer assistance.

Hilda van der Klippe, event organizer

The Drive is sponsored by area Churches and One Thorold. Donors can bring non-perishable foods directly to Community Care every day of the week and on June 14 they will be open in the afternoon.  The Thorold Community Care Food Bank is located at 19 Albert St W.

Download the flyer to print and deliver to mailboxes in your area.  Flyers are also available for pick up at at Community Care in early June.

If you have questions or would like to participate, please contact Hilda at hilda@myvillagechurch.ca or call 905-397-0502 to get flyers by the beginning of June.
