Food Drive by firefighters goes door-to-door

Volunteers from the Fire Department are set to join Search and Rescue and other emergency responders to help out the Sally Ann on Monday

Last year

You’ll know it’s actually the Chilliwack Fire Department on their annual Sally Ann food drive when you spot the firefighter uniforms and trucks.

The fire trucks add that necessary element of authenticity so folks can be reassured it’s the real thing.

Once again volunteers from the Fire Department along with  Emergency Social Services, and Chilliwack Search and Rescue will be going door-to-door in Chilliwack for non-perishables and donations to Chilliwack Salvation Army Food Bank.

This year their food drive is on Monday, Dec. 7 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“Although many members will be involved in this drive, it will be impossible to reach every home in the community,” said assistant fire chief Mike Bourdon.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Food Bank is welcome to  drop off items to Hall #1, at 45950 Cheam Avenue from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. all week long, from Dec. 7 to Dec. 11.

Last year, members of Emergency Social Services, Chilliwack Search and Rescue and the Chilliwack Fire Department collected an impressive 12,000 food items for the local Sally Ann to feed Chilliwack’s needy.

“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.”
