The Diplomats Drum and Bugle Corps will be collecting food and monetary donations this Saturday in advance of the holiday season in support of the Unemployed Help Centre’s People’s Choice Pantry food bank.

For the third consecutive year, the young members of the Diplomats will be spreading cheer by playing live music outside the Walker Road Real Canadian Superstore and asking the public to donate to help feed hungry people over the Christmas season. The food drive aims to help keep shelves stocked with much-needed items during the busy holiday season.

“We are so grateful for the efforts of our young people, especially at this time of year that’s all about giving,” said June Muir, CEO of the Unemployed Help Centre. “To see the next generation thinking of others and doing what they can to help is so inspiring. Because of their generosity we can continue to feed hungry people and fight hunger in the community.”

The Diplomats food drive and live performance will be taking place from 10am to 12noon at the Walker Road Real Canadian Superstore. Those wishing to donate can drop off food or monetary donations to the Unemployed Help Centre truck at the Superstore entrance.
