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!
