Chilliwack, BC– Christmas in July this past weekend July 17 and 18th, 2015, brought in $5343.10 for The Chilliwack Food Bank, from 12 locations across Chilliwack.
They could not have raised these funds without the help from 62 fantastic volunteers whom gave their time in 2 hour slots, some of them more than 2 shifts per day!!
Organizers cannot say “Thank You” enough to all of the generous people that volunteer and assist The Salvation Army ministries in the work we do to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and help the hurting.
And those were just Chilliwack Numbers!
They would like to thank the following establishments for allowing The Salvation Army in Chilliwack to place our kettles:
Save on Foods Chilliwack- Salish Plaza
Save on Foods Vedder
Salish Plaza Liquor Store
Vedder Liquor Store
The Real Canadian Superstore
Shoppers Drug Mart Chilliwack- Southgate Mall

The food bank gets low on a few items in the summer, right now we are lowest (or out of) our top 5 items which are :
Tinned Lunches- Ready to eat products such as Chef Boyardee and Alphagetti

Donations can be made through the Salvation Army.
