Order of the Eastern Star holds food drive in Abbotsford

Socially distanced event takes place on Saturday, June 13

Members of the Order of the Eastern Star’s Electa chapter 20 in Abbotsford are holding a food drive on Saturday, June 13.

The socially distanced event in support of local food banks takes place from 10 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of the chapter hall at 33860 Pine St.

Anyone wanting to make donations of non-perishable food is welcome to drop by.

The Electa chapter, which includes members from Abbotsford and Mission, was formed in 1919 and has continued its work for the community every 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.
