The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive in Prince Rupert ran this past week with collections being picked up on Saturday, September 15.

Designated homes received a paper collection bag in their mailboxes at the beginning of the week and were placed out on front steps to be picked up by volunteers Saturday morning. This was the second annual event for Prince Rupert. Last year just under 1500 pounds of nonperishable donations were collected and this year over 2100 pounds were collected.

A huge thank you goes out to all the community partners who contributed supplies, vehicles and even the time helping deliver and collecting bags.  Community Partners this year include Overwaitea foods, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Stuck on Designs, Maher Terminals, BMO Bank of Montreal The Salvation Army food bank, Tim Hortons,  and the Prince Rupert Port Authority

Over 50 volunteers from the community joined the volunteer collection day.
