Police deliver 1,252 pounds of food to Food Bank
Your Orangeville Police Service delivered 1,252 pounds of food to the Orangeville Food Bank Wednesday morning.
Officers delivered the food which included pasta, sauces and juices to the Orangeville Food Bank from a community partner arranged by the Police Service.
“We recognize the need to help the Orangeville Food Bank year round and not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas”, said Constable Scott Davis. “We are proud to be able to help our friends at the Food Bank. We value all of our community partners. Working together makes our community a better place”.
“The Orangeville Police Service has been an excellent community partner supporting the Food Bank for many years. Wednesday’s donation helps us at a time of the year when donations are slower but the need still exists. As we move into spring we will be looking for donations of baby food and formula to assist some of the two hundred children we see each month. Huge thank you to OPS in their generosity as good neighbours, caring for our community”, said Orangeville Food Bank Executive Director Heather Hayes.
In 2018, the Orangeville Police Service initiated the donation of 3,370 pounds of food and secured a $5,000 donation to the Food Bank.
