Home builders’ association holds food drive

Donations collected until Dec. 16 throughout the Fraser Valley

A food bank drive and collection event will support Abbotsford Community Services, Chilliwack Salvation Army and St. Joseph’s Parish (Mission).

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Fraser Valley (CHBA Fraser Valley) is preparing for its first annual campaign, where members are encouraged to participate by collecting non-perishable food items at their place business or job site from Nov. 20 to Dec. 16.

On Dec. 5, the CHBA Fraser Valley organized a single-day fundraising event, Stock the Shelves at Brixton Station, that invited members of the community to drop off donations of non-perishable food items to help fill the kitchen shelves at Brixton Station’s all-new show home, with the contributions going to all three recipient groups.

The event also included a special performance by Maple Ridge-based country sensation Madeline Merlo that offered free entry with the donation of a non-perishable food item.
