he Chilliwack Fire Department along with Chilliwack Search and Rescue (SAR) and Emergency Social Services (ESS) would like to thank the citizens of Chilliwack for making the 2013 Chilliwack Fire Department Food Drive a success.

Approximately 17,000 food items were collected by firefighters, SAR and ESS volunteers during a 2 hour period last night. These food items will have a significant, short term impact on the local Salvation Army Food Bank reserves.
