Abbotsford Job’s Daughters recently participated in a province-wide food bank drive held by the organization.

The group distributed grocery bags – donated by Save-On-Foods – to 700 homes in Abbotsford and Mission, requesting residents to fill them with items for the local food bank.

The girls then returned a few days later and picked up the donations, collecting about 900 pounds of food, which filled two large pallets that were donated to the food bank.

Job’s Daughters is an international organization for girls between 10 and 19 years of age.

They learn life skills such as leadership, teamwork, community service, public speaking, and self-confidence in a supportive environment.
