Over 80 volunteers to help collect and sort non-perishable food bags

The Prince Rupert BC Thanksgiving Food Drive wants to remind city residents to fill-up their bags with non-perishable food donations on Sept. 25 to support families in need this holiday season.

Over 80 volunteers will be cover more than 40 routes through Prince Rupert collecting food bags to be donated to the local food bank, The Salvation Army.
