Firefighters walked around the city and volunteers sorted the food collected last Monday
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 2014 Food Drive the most successful since we started 15 years ago.
Approximately 22,000 food items and $1,200 were collected by firefighters, SAR and ESS volunteers during a 2-hour period Monday, December 2. These food items will have a significant, short-term impact on the local Salvation Army Food Bank reserves.
Donations will continue to be accepted for the month of December at Fire Hall #1 located at 45950 Cheam Avenue (corner of Young Road and Cheam Avenue) from 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
Thank you Chilliwack!
