World Homelessness Day Food Drive Collects 2,000 lbs For Food Bank

Thursday October 12th, 2023, 8:35am


The Salvation Army Windsor Centre of Hope, in partnership with Windsor Police, LaSalle Police, Tailgate Takeout and Windsor Loblaws, held a city-wide Food Drive on October 10th to raise awareness for World Homelessness Day.

The centre raised 2000 lbs of non-perishables and $3400 for their food bank.

“Our center’s programs and services are designed to support those who are struggling with food security and/or homelessness. We need support from the community to help keep our food bank supplied so we can continue helping others,” says Major Danny Pinksen, Executive Director at the Windsor Centre of Hope.

The Windsor Centre of Hope has teamed up with Loblaws to hold its first annual Food Drive to re-stock their shelves, which have been sparse since the beginning of this year. “We are so grateful to Riley and his team at Loblaws for initiating this event and for Windsor Police, LaSalle Police, and Tailgate Takeout for their support in making this event a success,” says Major Danny Pinksen.

With the great success of this year’s event, the centre has decided to make this an annual food drive. The Salvation Army encourages everyone to assist all food banks in the greater Windsor region not only around the holidays but throughout the year.
