Food drive coming for Comox Valley Food Bank

  • Sep. 5, 2018 10:30 a.m.

Some 6,000 volunteers will visit B.C. neighborhoods this fall.

Between Monday, Sept. 10 and Wednesday, Sept. 12, local volunteers will deliver flyers and donation bags for food to residential addresses along assigned routes within the City of Courtenay and the Town of Comox. Our flyers offer instructions on how to donate and include contact information should you have any questions.

Anyone wishing to make a donation of perishable and/or non-perishable food items is asked to place them in the bag and leave it on their doorstep before 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15.

Our volunteers will travel back through their assigned neighbourhoods to collect these donations. If we have not picked up your donation by 1 p.m., please contact us through the email on your flyer, and we will make the necessary arrangements.

On this same day, these donations will be gathered at a central location and then transported to the Comox Valley Food Bank serving our community.
