For today, the Whitehorse Food Bank has its shelves filled with canned and dried foods following the annual food drive by Whitehorse churches.
Once again, the people of Whitehorse have demonstrated their generosity. Thank you. To the hundreds of volunteers from the 14 participating Whitehorse churches, the nondenominational group and the Learning Disabilities Youth Group who distributed and collected the food bags and to all those volunteers from the organizations, businesses, and churches who pitched in to sort and stack the shelves at the food bank, thank you.
A huge thank you to Stephen Dunbar-Edge, executive-director of the Whitehorse Food Bank, for his organization and enthusiastic support on every night of the drive.
The following businesses also offered generous support: Willow Printers, for their donation of labels and posters, and to Sam Jurovich and Mike Sheppard of Super A Porter Creek, for the grocery bags. And finally, the media Ã CBC, CHON-FM, CKRW, Whitehorse Star and Yukon News Ã for publicizing the event.
For the immediate future the less fortunate members of our community will benefit from your generosity of spirit.
