City-Wide Food Drive Hungry For Donations

Jaime, a volunteer with the Welland Food Drive, picks up a bag of non-perishables in the First Avenue/Woodlawn Road neighbourhood around 10:45 a.m. today. From there it went into the back of the truck before being taken for sorting. Food collected goes to Hope Centre, Open Arms Mission and Salvation Army food banks. Jaime's winning smile shows that collection is actually a labour of love. (Photos by Joe Barkovich)

    The first Saturday of November has been the date of the Welland Food Drive for 23 years. Joe Barkovich has always been a huge supporter and advocate — thank you so very much Joe! I got involved nearly a decade ago. With my children, I canvassed a route and then I witnesses the community’s outpouring of generosity afterwards at the drop off point, at Club Richelieu. From that point on, I knew I had to get more involved. This year the volume of donations, and the commitment of volunteer time was overwhelming. What a community we live in. Monique Finley, Co-ordinator
