Central Community Church’s annual Stuff-a-Truck food drive is happening right now until 4 p.m.
The event is a fundraiser for the Chilliwack Salvation Army.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event is different in that it’s a contactless drive-thru food drive at the church on Chilliwack Central Road.
By about 11:30 a.m. today, youth pastor Jon Kornelsen said traffic had been a bit slow and that they were hoping things would pick up in the afternoon.
In past years they’ve held the event outside Save-On-Foods where donations were was always quite successful.
Just before noon today (Saturday, June 27) they had collected about 1,500 items and $300. Their goal is to bring in 6,000 canned food items.
There is still time to donate. People can drop off non-perishable food items, as well as diapers and cash today until 4 p.m. at 46100 Chilliwack Central Rd.
Other suggested items to donate include: canned fish, canned chicken, canned beans, pasta and pasta sauce, canned stew and chili, rice, cereal, peanut butter, and canned fruits and vegetables.
