County Food Bank Gets Canadian Tire lift


Amidst all the beautiful blooms in the Garden Centre at the Canadian Tire Store in Morrisburg on Friday, there was a little Christmas gift-giving going on. Pictured above, centre, Canadian Tire’s Ninon Proulx (left) and manager Christine Thompson present a cheque for $570 to Dundas County Food Bank board member Brian Cox, left, and vice-chair Terry Triskle (far right). The very much appreciated donation came about as a result of gift card stocking holders that were sold at the store for $2 apiece during the Christmas season. This comes at a great time said Triskle in thanking the store and the customers who supported the campaign. “Pretty much, anytime from February through May, we don’t have a lot coming in. Food or cash is always welcome,” he said. The Dundas County Food Bank has locations in both Morrisburg and Winchester and collection boxes for non-perishable food donations in various locations in both South and North Dundas. Cash donations are always most welcome and are used to purchase perishable food items that are included in the food boxes, along with regular items when the Food Bank stock runs out.
