Fraser Valley Auto Mall holds 12th annual food drive

Convoy to deliver donated items to food bank on Saturday

The Fraser Valley Auto Mall Food Drive holds its 12th annual convoy to deliver items to the Abbotsford Community Services’ Food Bank on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 11 a.m.

The items have been collected over the prior weeks at the nine auto mall dealerships, Automall Autobody, local fire halls, and Save-On-Foods locations.

As well, firefighters have gone door to door in local neighbourhoods to collect donations.

The public is also invited to drop off items on Saturday morning prior to the convoy’s departure.

The convoy will consist of several vehicles from the auto mall, Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and Save-On-Foods, as well as vehicles with the fire chief and auto mall manager.

The convoy will also include vehicles for the parade marshal and the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau.

They will do two loops around the auto mall – located on Mt. Lehman Road – and then will head along South Fraser Way to the food bank on Essendene Avenue.

From there, they will travel to the food bank warehouse on Progressive Way to unload the food items collected.
