A convoy of vehicles made its way to the Abbotsford Food Bank today (Saturday) to deliver tons of donated food to the organization.
The event was the culmination of the 10th annual Fraser Valley Auto Mall Food Drive and collected more than $50,000 in food donations.
The convoy consisted of 10 vehicles from the auto mall, one from Automall Autobody, six vehicles from Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service, one semi-trailer truck, vehicles with the fire chief and mall manager, and two Save-On-Foods trucks.
It also included vehicles for the parade marshall and the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau.
They did two loops around the auto mall – located on Mt. Lehman Road – and then travelled along South Fraser Way to the food bank on Essendene Avenue.
From there, they headed to the food bank warehouse on Progressive Way to unload the food items collected.
The food was collected over the prior weeks at the auto mall dealerships, at local fire halls and at Save-On-Foods locations.
