Savour York Region: Food drive
We have been receiving continuous support and blessings in our programs; something we can’t fully comprehend but are eternally grateful for. It has always been part of Savour York Region’s mission to extend our success to other people, especially to those who need it most. So to give back to everyone, we are holding our 13th Annual Food Drive!
Savour York Region’s Annual Food Drive
It’s time to savour the fall flavours and give thanks while giving back!
Hunger takes no holiday, so as a prelude to the giving season, we will be preparing for our 13th Annual Savour York Region Thanksgiving Food Drive. In cooperation with the Vaughan Food Bank, we will be providing food to families in Vaughan and the surrounding agencies across York Region year-round! However, to do this, we are humbly asking for your help so we can ensure that we have enough supplies to give out to everyone.
We accept all forms of donations, as long as it comes from you whole-heartedly!
Please join us on site as we kick off the 13th Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive! Let us all extend our help to the Vaughan Food Bank!
For those interested to participate, the meetup will be on Saturday, October 5, 2019. The event will start from 11 am until 3 pm at Fortinos on Highway 7 & Ansley Grove in Woodbridge.
Come out and have some fun, do some grocery shopping and above all, bask in the amazing feeling of giving back.
If you cannot attend the event, you may still make a monetary donation safely online!
How can I help?
We encourage everyone to bring easy-to-eat food like canned goods, noodles, bread and biscuits. Although food is our main priority, toiletries would also be welcomed!
If you don’t know what else to bring, bottled water always works!
For those who can’t appear in person and wish to have their donations delivered, just give us a call and our team will guide you throughout the process.
If you can’t make a monetary donation but still want to help, that’s okay! Our teams certainly wouldn’t mind an extra helping hand. You can be assigned to shop for groceries, pack items, give out bags or facilitate the area. We would also appreciate you joining us for cleaning up afterwards!
Be sure to wear your most comfortable clothes and sneakers so you won’t have a hard time moving around! You can bring an extra shirt to change into if you’d like.
The annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is an all-around community event made possible thanks to the support of corporate sponsors, partners, media, the City of Vaughan including members of the council, and the many residents, we thank you all for your continued support.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to call us!
