Chilliwack, BC – The Chilliwack Fire Department, along with our partners, Chilliwack Search and Rescue (SAR), Emergency Social Services (ESS) and Scouts Canada, would like to thank the citizens of Chilliwack for making the 2015 Food Drive a great success.
Approximately 18,000 food items and $1,500 were collected and sorted by firefighters, SAR, ESS and Scouts Canada volunteers during a 2 hour period last night. These food items will have a significant, short term impact on the local Salvation Army Food Bank reserves.
Donations will continue to be accepted for the month of December at Fire Hall #1 located at 45950 Cheam Avenue (corner of Young Road and Cheam Avenue) from 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
Thank you Chilliwack!
Ian Josephson, Fire Chief
Chilliwack Fire Department
