It has been a year like no other. Businesses and employees throughout the Forest City have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
These are the times when community matters most. With the COVID-19 pandemic response creating so much uncertainty, Business Cares has been asked to assist with the London and Area Food Bank’s annual Spring Food Drive that runs from April 3 through April 13.
Londoners answered the call and proved once again that taking care of business means taking care of people, as the Business Cares Food Drive collected a record 476,000 pounds worth of food and cash donations for this year's campaign.
The 2019 Food Drive -- the 20th annual campaign -- concluded today with its day of giving and the 476,000 pounds represents a 7.4 per cent increase over last year's record total of 443,000.
The Business Cares Food Drive concludes on Friday, Dec. 20, 2019, but the campaign still needs donations to help it reach its goal of 443,000 pounds worth of food.
"Every year the generosity of the London community is inspiring," said Business Cares campaign chair Wayne Dunn "However, we still need donations to achieve our goal to help the many individuals and families in need. We have our fingers crossed that the campaign will get some nice surprises between now and Friday morning."

The Business Cares Food Drive doesn't kick off until Nov. 29, but many businesses are already on board, collecting donations, and making plans to make a difference.

Taking Care of Business Means Taking Care of People
Though measures to fight Covid-19 have kept us farther apart, this year the need for us to come "together" to support those in need is more prominent than ever. This year's campaign may be more virtual, but the need is very much real. Learn how you can donate to the cause.
