Rotary Etobicoke’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

This is the fourth year that we are conducting our Thanksgiving Food Drive. Together with our community partners, we were able to collect $3000 in food donations and $300 in financial contributions. The food was donated to the North and South Salvation Army locations.
A big shoutout to Tom, Ahalya, Anne, Liz, Madison, Iosif and Gregg for coming together and attaching flyers to the bags. On Wednesday, Lynda, her husband Paul, April, Iosif, Tom and his wife Leslie placed the bags on doors throughout the Kingsway neighbourhood. And on Sunday, officers from 22 Division with four police vehicles came out in full force to help collect the bags full of food and drop them off. We collected over 150 bags of groceries.
Kudos to Andrea from DUCA for their continued support in our food drive - they donated the bags. Sonam from Infinite Care for sponsoring the printing of the flyers, Gerald Lue from Illumineer for printing the flyers at a substantial discount. And last, but not least, a big Thank You to the residents of the Kingsway for supporting us again this year! Their generous contributions made this year another overwhelming success.
When a community comes together great things happen! Rotary Etobicoke along with the different community partners and the Kingsway residents came together to help the less fortunate celebrate Thanksgiving 2021.
