Also throughout September, the Abbotsford Centre Envision Financial box office will serve as a dropoff point for non-perishable food items in support of Envision Financial’s The Full Cupboard, which in turn goes to the Archway Food Bank of Abbotsford.

Cash donations can also be dropped off at the box office or donations can be made online at abbotsfordfoodbank.com/donate by writing “Touch a Truck” in the message section.

As a thank you, anyone who donates in September will be entered to win one of several prize packs, including the grand prize of a Nintendo Switch Lite and $50 gift card to the Nintendo store.

Touch a Truck: Road Trip can be viewed on Abbotsford Centre’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube channels.
