It is one time a year that Drumheller residents get together to help those in need and kick off the Christmas season.
Drumheller’s annual food drive is coming up on Thursday, November 30. This is a one-day blitz throughout the Town of Drumheller and surrounding communities in an effort to fill the shelves of The Salvation Army Food Bank in time for the Christmas season.
“It is amazing how many hands make light work and we come together and there are enough people to make the job easy,” said Summer Manca one of this year’s organizers. “It is great to see the community involved.”
In the spirit of community, many volunteers go door-to-door to collect the donations. There are muster points throughout the community where volunteers can meet at 5:45 p.m. on November 30 to comb the neighbourhoods.
Many others show their support by donating non-perishable food items.
To make the evening go smoothly, tucked into this week’s edition of “The Drumheller Mail” is a red bag.
This highly visible bag allows residents to fill them with their donation and leave them out on the porch to make it easier for volunteers to collect.
More volunteers will be at Greentree Mall to sort the food donations.
