Councillor Doug Whillans Donating to the Food Drive


President Sandy Knight and Plant Chair Gary Rumboldt unload at Knights Table

On behalf of Knights Table, we are indebted to Unifor Local 584  annual Food Drive to assist those impacted by hunger, poverty & homelessness in the community.

A week and half ago the food bank was basically empty without any food.  We were challenged with limited food to give to our clients.

To date, we received 87, 863 pounds of food  during our Thanksgiving Food Drive.  Our Thanksgiving Food Drive ends on October 26, 2018 and it is our hope that we can continue to receive food donations to assist those in need in our community.

Please note the totals for Unifor Local 584 Thanksgiving Food Drive:

  • Unifor Local 584 Retirees             –             800 lbs. Plus $150 in Cash Donations
  • Unifor Local 584                               -             954  lbs.

Thank you for caring for those individuals and families who continue to rely on Knights Table for their daily food support.

Regards,
Annie Bynoe
Executive Director
