he Chilliwack Fire Department will be holding their Annual Food Drive on Monday, December 5th from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.  Once again, department members will be going door to door in the community, collecting donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank. 


Although many members will be involved in this drive, it will be impossible to reach every home in the community. Anyone wanting to make a donation to the Food Bank can drop items off at Hall #1, 45950 Cheam Avenue from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday- Friday.


Last year, members of Emergency Social Services, St. John’s Ambulance, Chilliwack Search and Rescue and the Chilliwack Fire Department collected over 12,000 food items for the Salvation Army.   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.
