As the holiday season approaches, the Williams Lake Fire Department is once again conducting a food drive to collect non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
From 6 pm to 9 pm on Tuesday, December 7th, WLFD members will go door to door in the areas of:
• Hamel and Signal Point
• Pearkes and Centennial Drive
• Westridge and Country Club Boulevard
• Western Avenue all the way up to Twelfth Avenue
“While the Fire Department has traditionally conducted a “Christmas in July” program to help restock the Food Bank’s shelves, this year we are responding to an increased need to support the community with this initiative,” said Assistant Fire Chief Joan Flaspohler. “We are asking the community help bring a festive season to those that rely on the Food Bank by donating non-perishable food items for us to deliver to the Salvation Army.”
Residents in the above areas who would like to participate are asked to place their donations at their front door for the firefighters to collect on the evening of Tuesday, December 7th. Donations can also be dropped off at the Fire Hall between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm the following day, Wednesday, December 8th.
“I would like to thank everyone in Williams Lake for their ongoing support,” said Flaspohler. “We are grateful for our community’s generosity, and to the Salvation Army for their dedication to helping those in need.”
