Order of the Eastern Star collects items and $900 cash for food bank

Abbotsford chapter supports Archway Community Services Food Bank

Members of the Order of the Eastern Star’s Electa chapter 20 in Abbotsford held a successful food drive on June 13, raising $900 in cash and dozens of food donations.

The socially distanced event in support of the Archway Community Services Food Bank took place in the parking lot of the chapter hall at 33860 Pine St.

The Electa chapter consists of members from the Fraser Valley, including Abbotsford and Mission. It was formed in 1919 and has continued its work for the community ever since, including raising money for various charities.

These endeavours have included the local food bank, the Salvation Army Christmas Angel Tree, the Abbotsford Regional Hospital cancer library, and more.

The members have also made countless cancer dressings, which are sent to Vancouver to be sterilized and then made available to any cancer patient in B.C. and the Yukon.
