A convoy

For the eighth consecutive year, a group of Abbotsford businesses is assisting the local food bank in filling its shelves over the holiday season.

All nine dealers of the Fraser Valley Auto Mall, along with Automall Autobody and Save-On-Foods, have teamed up with Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service (AFRS) to collect food donations.

The next collection day is on Sunday, Dec. 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Save-On-Foods location at 32700 South Fraser Way.

As well, the auto mall dealers and Automall Autobody invite the public to drop off food bank donations to the businesses until Dec. 12.

It all culminates in the annual convoy departing from the auto mall on Mt. Lehman Road at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13 to deliver the donations to the food bank.

At least a dozen decorated vehicles from the auto mall will accompany a number of AFRS trucks, Abbotsford Police vehicles, and a large Save-On-Foods truck along South Fraser Way to the food bank on Essendene Avenue.
