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."
There is still time to help. Food and cash or cheque donations may be dropped off at the Business Cares Headquarters at 1275 Hubrey Road in London, or call 519-661-9803 to arrange donation pick-ups. Cheques should be made out to "London and Area Food Bank/Business Cares."
This week, volunteers are circling the City of London, picking up both food and cheques from more than 500 London-based companies and organizations that take part in Business Cares, a three-week campaign that has been able to increase its donations each year. This is the 20th annual Business Cares Food Drive and the campaign concludes on Dec. 20 with delivery of non-perishable food items and cash donations to the London Food Bank.
