Chilliwack emergency responders going door to door for food drive Monday

Annual event raises thousands of cans of food for the Salvation Army Food Bank

Don’t be surprised if a firefighter knocks on your door Monday evening looking for food.

The Chilliwack Fire Department will be holding its annual food drive on Dec. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m., and once again, department members will be going door to door in the community, collecting donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank.

Although many members will be involved in this drive, it will be impossible to reach every home in the community. Anyone wanting to make a donation to the Food Bank can drop items off at Hall 1, 45950 Cheam Ave., Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during the month of December.

Last year, members of Emergency Social Services, Chilliwack Search and Rescue, and the Chilliwack Fire Department collected over 18,000 food items for the Salvation Army. The department thanks the community in advance for their continued generous support in helping those who are less fortunate in our community and we look forward to another successful food drive.
