As our year end approaches South Porcupine Food Bank is dedicated to continuing to provide food and other necessary items to those in our community who need it. Help us continue to achieve our goal to raise $20,000 by the end of the year and raise awareness about food insecurity in your community.
The South Porcupine Food Bank invites the public to participate in our “GivingTuesday” event planned on Tuesday, December 3rd. This kicks off our $20,000 year-end campaign, with proceeds towards our operating costs, including purchase of Christmas hams & turkeys for needy individuals and families.
You can help by donating non-perishable food items at our “Fill The Van” event or by making a monetary donation (tax receipts issued) on Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Porcupine Mall. You may also add food items to our bin at Food Basics.
We humbly thank all our supporters who have contributed food items and monetary donations through food drives, churches and various organizations and businesses, as well as very generous individuals. We depend on your combined support to continue to serve those in need.
For Aug., Sept. and Oct. 2019 we served a monthly average of 238 people (158 adults & 80 children). Our monthly operating costs in 2019 have averaged $6,021 to date.
