CIBC doing its part to battle hunger in Stoney Creek

The CIBC is doing its part to help fight hunger in the community.

The 393 Barton St. E. branch has been holding a used book drive, with all funds raised benefiting the Stoney Creek Community Food Bank.

General manager Angie MacKenzie says the branch wanted to do something that could have an impact right away.

“We know that there are a lot of families in need in our community and that donations tend to be down during the summer months,” she said, adding employees and customers have helped raise $200 for the non-profit charity so far. “We’re hoping to continue on throughout the year and help as many individuals as possible.”

Employees also have been bringing in food donations as part of casual dress days this month. They’ve put together five boxes of non-perishable food items for the food bank thus far.

MacKenzie said staff would like to help out in other ways as well.

“We’d like to go down to the food bank and volunteer with sorting and handing out food to families,” she said. “We’re hoping to do that throughout the year too. We want to give back to our community in any way that we can.”
