Health workers and Art’s Custom Woodcrafting raise almost $4,500 for Archway Food Bank

Donation made to thank community for their ongoing support

A group of Abbotsford health-care providers has donated a total of almost $4,500 to the Archway Food Bank.

The group works with pediatric, maternity and neonatal populations. They originally started raising money through donations from staff, but when they shared what they were doing with friends and family, those people also wanted to get involved too.

A local Abbotsford company, Art’s Custom Woodcrafting, offered to match the donation. Together, they donated a total of $4,450 to the Archway Food Bank of Abbotsford.

The group said one of their biggest motivations for the fundraiser was to give back to the community and to thank everyone for the support they have been given.

“We have loved and appreciated all the encouraging posters, beautifully painted stones … and the overall well wishes we’ve received from the community,” they said.
