BRACEBRIDGE, ON – The Manna Food Bank is throwing out a “huge” thank you to everyone who made the Muskoka Oldtimers Fall Food Drive a success.
According to Manna, roughly 200 volunteers came out from all over Bracebridge. They said most were from Monck, Bracebridge and Macaulay public schools, along with members from 2250 Muskoka Pioneers Royal Canadian Army Cadets and the South Muskoka Bears Hockey Association.
The food bank added over $3,000 was raised for the facility and “lots” of food was collected from all over town.
“Quite a few donations arrived in cardboard boxes and reusable shopping bags,” said the food bank, in their announcement. “Thanks for going that little bit further for the environment. If we missed you – sorry!”
The release was referring to those who couldn’t make it out and still want to participate. Donations are always being accepted.
“And last but certainly not least, thank you again and always, Muskoka Oldtimers, for your amazing, long-standing support. It’s been nearly 30 years, and you’ve still got it!”
