The Archway Food Bank of Abbotsford was recently the recipient of a $5,000 donation from the owner, staff and customers at Shoppers Drug Mart (Whatcom Road location), led by members of the Rotary Club of Abbotsford-Sumas.
The money was raised in less than two weeks, and the campaign is still underway.
Pharmacist/owner Mina Fahim thanked the community and staff for their generosity.
“They (the staff) are the front-line heroes who have enthusiastically embraced and promoted this initiative. Being on the front lines working during this pandemic, they know first-hand the impact it has made and I’m so proud of each and every one of them,” he said.
