Food Drive accepting donations


With Thanksgiving just around the corner, time is running out to contribute to the Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.

The Bargain Shop, in Fort Frances, is currently holding their annual food drive. Items can be purchased in the store to be donated to The Salvation Army, to assist in making Thanksgiving plentiful for families right here in town. If you’re able to contribute, Dawn Gray and her team would be delighted to see you.

This year, The Salvation Army has served over 2,300 children, women and men through our local Food Bank. The have seen an increase over last year and more than 10 per cent of this increase is attributed to working families simply trying to make ends meet. Your thoughtful support means nourishment and restful sleeps for parents.

Thanksgiving Food Drive is on until end of day, Friday, October 8.
