Coquitlam Centre helping Share fill up the food bank shelves
Coquitlam Centre and Share Family and Community Services are partnering to fill the food bank shelves this summer with a special event featuring the Philup the foodbank mascot.
From 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 21, visit the Coquitlam Centre parking lot on the corner of Barnet Highway and Johnson Avenue in Coquitlam with a non-perishable food donation. There will also be hotdogs, giveaways and activities for the kids, including a chance to meet Philup.
All non-perishable food items and financial contributions will support Share Food Bank.
Donations of food can also be dropped off at the Share Food Bank located at 2615 Clarke Street, Port Moody, or at any local grocery store with a Food Bank Box in the Tri-cities. To make a financial donation call 604-540-9161 or visit www.sharesociety.ca
Other ideas for helping the food bank this summer:
• Consider having your own food drive to help those out in this community who need a helping hand.
• Add a food drive to your summer gatherings between now and July 21. Invite guests to your business or home to bring food to your family reunion, summer picnic or block party,
Share is hoping to set a record for the most food raised.
