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” and resulting in full shelves for the moment.
That the food drive is able to cover most of the city is due to the participation of 15 churches, a non-denominational group, Boy Scouts of Whitehorse, Porter Creek Secondary staff and many other individuals. They distribute and collect the grocery bags and then 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, Porter Creek Super A and Manager Mike Sheppard for donating the bags, and the media – specifically, the Yukon News, the Whitehorse Star, WHTV, CBC Radio, CKRW and CHON-FM – for promoting the event.
