The Food Bank needs your help over Christmas

We are grateful for all the money and non-perishable food items that you offer to help our neighbours.

Editor:

The Ladysmith Food Bank offers thanks to all the people who gave their bottle return money to the donation box that used to be in the Liquor Store in Coronation Mall.

We are grateful for all the money and non-perishable food items that you offer to help our neighbours. I remind you that the churches, who took over the food bank from Julian North a decade and a half ago, all have donation boxes and there are bins for food donations at our local grocery stores.

The Food Bank is located in the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, along with many other programs for Ladysmith residents. The LRCA is also organizing the Christmas Cheer Fund for our needy neighbours this month. You can give your own Christmas gifts to the Food Bank and Christmas Cheer Fund and you will get a receipt along with a warm thank you.
