Bob & Carol Bellamy’s Annual Christmas Food Drive

6,604 lbs of food & $9,218. collected so far! For 5 years we have combined our annual Calendar delivery with a collection for the Barrie Food Bank.  We are already planning our 2017- 6th Annual Christmas Food Drive. What we do: First we attach information flyers to empty Food Bank bags and deliver them in advance to the homes in the pick-up area, (plus to many of our loyal clients outside the pick-up area as well.)  The flyers let the neighbours know the date & time we will be delivering their calendars & collecting their donations.  Then we decorate a float & load it with calendars & candy canes, complete with Christmas Carols ready to play! We enjoy an afternoon with our neighbours & their children as they join us on our parade route – enjoying the true spirit of the Season – wearing elf hats and singing Christmas Carols as we deliver calendars & candy canes & collecting Food Bank donations.  What a blast & a win-win for our neighbours & the Barrie Food Bank. Then it’s back to our home for hot chocolate, cookies, & chili for all the helpers – while we await the results of the weigh-in & cash donation total. LET’S CONTINUE THIS ANNUAL EVENT WORKING TOGETHER SO THAT NO ONE HAS TO GO HUNGRY!  Thank you & Merry Christmas! Bob & Carol Bellamy
