Local Food Banks Can Always Use A Hand

Looking for a meaningful way to get involved in the local community?  I’ve got two words for you: food bank.

Grey Highlands area food banks can always use volunteers to help with co-ordination, organization, supply management and donations.  And what better way to meet people, make local connections and serve the people in the communities and neighbourhoods we know and love?  There are food banks in Chatsworth, Dundalk, Flesherton and Markdale so you’re sure to find one that’s close to home and in need of an extra helping hand.  As we begin to think about the summer drawing to a close, we’re also approaching holidays like Thanksgiving and even Christmas when needs increase so why not get ahead of things and begin your involvement now?  Here’s how:
