Shoppers Drug Mart and Rotary donate $5,000 to Archway Food Bank in Abbotsford

Owner, staff and customers raise money in less than two weeks

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.
