Automall holds annual food drive

The annual Fraser Valley Automall Food Bank Drive is now underway.

The public is invited to drop off food donations until Dec. 15 at the Fraser Valley Automall – located at the Mt. Lehman interchange off Highway 1 ­– as well as Save-On-Foods and firehalls on George Ferguson Way, West Railway, North Parallel and Blue Jay.

Additional collections will take place Sunday, Dec. 2 at the Save-On-Foods on Sumas Way and on Saturday, Dec. 15 at PriceSmart Foods on South Fraser Way.

Firefighters will canvass for food and cash donations from Dec. 3 to 14 in local neighbourhoods.

It all culminates in a convoy leaving the automall on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 11 a.m. to deliver the donations – stored in a Save-On-Foods semi-trailer – to the Abbotsford Food Bank on Essendene Avenue.

The food bank drive began in 2006 with the eight dealers from the automall and The Abbotsford News.

On board now are Save-On-Foods, Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service, and the Abbotsford Police Department.

Now also on board are PriceSmart Foods, HUB Insurance, and Automall Autobody.
