Please help if you can
The Friends in Need Food Bank has been running out of food due to the increase in need in our communities and Purolator has stepped up to help replenish its stock. Since 2003, Purolator Tackle Hunger (PTH) has been raising food and funds with more than 20 million pounds of food delivered for communities in need.
“2023 is our 20th anniversary, and we’ve set our biggest goal yet: to raise two million pounds this year for food banks across Canada.” Says Chanelle Bradshaw, Purolator’s Community Coordinator. “We are very excited to partner with Friends in Need and utilize our resources to help collect as much food, and monetary donations possible for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.”
Together Purolator and Friends in Need with the support of the City of Maple Ridge, the City of Pitt Meadows, the Ridge Meadows Chamber of Commerce (RMCC), and the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association (DMRBIA) are organizing a food drive involving the business community for the last week of July.
- Purolator drivers will be dropping off donation boxes on Monday, July 24 to participating businesses which will ask their employees, customers, and clients to bring donations of non-perishable foods during that week.
- Donations will be picked up by Purolator on Monday July 31 and delivered to Friends in Need.
