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.
