Many hands ensure shelves re-stocked for those in need

News Oct 09, 2009 Ancaster News

On behalf of Dundas Community Services, the Salvation Army Food bank, and the association of Dundas Churches, we would like to thank the many volunteers who showed up last Saturday for the annual Food Drive.

With their help we managed to collect 82,000 pounds of food and $3,000 cash.

We would also like to thank the community for their generous donations of food, Debra Downey, senior editor for Hamilton Community News for her excellent promotion of this very important event, Phil Samek of Adso Communications for the donation of the tents, the Rotary Clubs of Dundas for setting up all the boxes, the Dundas Lioness' Club for the coffee and snacks, the Dundas Lions Club for their barbecue lunch for all the volunteers, and to Mother Nature for keeping the rain away for most of the day.

Generous community

It really makes one proud to live in such a generous community, and is quite astonishing to see how so much food, gets packed and stored in such a short time.

Hold your head high Dundas. You showed what makes this the greatest community to live in.
