As part of their National Drive Away Hunger Campaign, Cornwall’s BDO office hosted a food drive for the Agape Centre at Baxtrom’s Your Independent Grocer On Saturday, October 11.
They raised an impressive $1,400 in cash, along with 975 lbs of potatoes and 724 lbs of dry goods. That’s a total of 1,700 lbs of food!
The company’s national goal was to raise 500,000 lbs of food.
We are very grateful to Krystle Mitrow and the BDO Cornwall team for helping us feed community members in need. The potatoes have already been happily received by many families and individuals, and the non-perishable food was added to the food bank shelves.
If you or your organization is interested in hosting a food drive, please take a look at our resources online, or contact Joy Morin at 613-938-9297 ext. 28.
