WELLAND – A message from Open Arms Mission prior to Saturday’s pop-up food drive in various parts of Welland:
Before COVID-19, we were sending 1 skid of food from our warehouse to the food bank to fill up the shelves for the week. Now, we are sending 2 full skids of food. We are distributing twice as much food as before.
Tomorrow, if you received a flyer in your mailbox for a door-to-door food drive in your neighborhood, please place a donation in a location visible from the road (and please check best-before dates before donating) by the time indicated on the flyer.
If you did not receive a flyer, you can donate at one of our 7 drop off locations:
1. Seaway Mall hosted by Welland BIC outside the former Target location, 10am-12pm
2. Wellspring Church, 370 South Pelham Rd., 10am-12pm
3. Rice Road Community Church 10am-12pm
4. 191 Thorold Rd., 10am-2:00pm
5. 322 McAlpine St., 10am-12pm
6. Mama Misfit’s Cheesecakery, 77 West Main St., 12-5pm
7. Grumpy Gramma’s food truck at Canadian Tire 11:30am-6pm
Thank you in advance for your generosity tomorrow!
