Noodlebox in Abbotsford raises money for mental health

Location among 23 on Wednesday, Sept. 15 donating half their procceds

The Abbotsford location of Noodlebox Canada is among the company’s 23 sites that are raising funds today (Sept. 15) for the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).

Half of the day’s proceeds will be donated to the CMHA, which Noodlebox has supported since 2014.

Each Noodlebox location supports the CMHA branch in their community, and the money raised supports services in that area.

Noodlebox’s day to give back is held every September, and over the past six years has raised more than $100,000 for the CMHA.

The CMHA says that in any given year, one in five in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness, and throughout the pandemic, it is three times more likely that people are struggling with anxiety.

All Noodlebox locations are open for dine-in/take-out service, and orders can be done on the Noodlebox app or in person.

The Abbotsford location is at 2455 West Railway St.
