The Ladysmith Kinsmen are holding a food drive this weekend in the hopes of raising a tonne of food for the Ladysmith Food Bank.
The Kinsmen will be in front of 49th Parallel Grocery Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. accepting food items for the food bank and selling hot dogs by donation.
During their last food drive in November, the Kinsmen raised $1,400 through hot dog sales and collected half a tonne of food, and they’re now aiming to raise a full tonne for the Ladysmith Food Bank.
“Right now is the time of year they don’t get much,” said Kinsmen member Jim Delcourt. “There’s a ton of need right now.”
If anyone would like to drop off food items earlier or arrange for a pickup, they can contact Jim Delcourt at 250-245-3137 or contact any other Kinsmen members.
