The Woodslee Community Center has been busy collecting cans as part of their ‘Woodslee Cares’ Food Drive Initiative.
They partnered with United Way and other community groups, with all items collected going directly to the Essex Area food banks and Lakeshore Community Food Bank.
The food drive concluded with almost double their goal.
“The support of the community was not a surprise at all,” says program manager Patrik O’Brien. “This was our chance to help those in our local communities during the holiday season and show how our small rural community cares. We have exceeded our goal of 1,000 items collected and finished with a grand total of 1,756.”
