Community Fun Day benefits food bank

July 29, 2019

St. Christopher’s Anglican Church on Crosby Avenue organized a fun way to support our food bank. On July 6 church members held a Community Fun Day to raise funds for the Richmond Hill Community Food Bank. There was a large garage sale and additional food tables set out under canopies, with proceeds going to the food bank to help hungry families. Hunger in our community is experienced not just at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, but during summer months, as well. Our board and volunteers appreciate this summertime generosity from St. Christopher’s!

Summertime Cram The Cruiser

August 9, 2019

Sergeant Joan Wilson of 2 District York Regional Police, with the help of numerous YRP officers, organized a recent food drive at Sobeys at Bathurst and Rutherford for the Richmond Hill Community Food Bank. Food bank manager Lee Reynolds (black print top) personally came to thank officers Nigel Cole, Robert Li and Vince Garisto, who were on hand to accept food donations and sell cupcakes to raise money to help feed hungry families in Richmond Hill and Thornhill. Warehouse manager Bob Ewart brought the food bank van to accept all the donations. We so appreciate the generosity of families, Sobeys management and staff, and York Regional Police, for helping make this summer Cram the Cruiser event a success!
