Food drive thanks

The churches of Whitehorse would like to thank the people of Whitehorse for their very generous support during last week's annual food drive in support of the Whitehorse Food Bank.

The churches of Whitehorse would like to thank the people of Whitehorse for their very generous support during last week’s annual food drive in support of the Whitehorse Food Bank.

Stephen Dunbar-Edge, executive director of the Whitehorse Food Bank, described the food drive as “very successful,” leading to full shelves for the moment.

That the food drive is able to cover most of the city is due to the participation of 14 churches, a non-denominational group and many individuals who are willing to distribute and collect the grocery bags and then to sort and stack the food when it arrives at the food bank. Thanks to all of you.

We would also like to thank Willow Printers for their very kind donation of labels and posters, the Yukon Liquor Corp. for the bags, and the media – specifically, the Yukon News, the Whitehorse Star, CKRW and CHON-FM – for promoting the event.
