I recently received the email below from Kim D’Eri at Caledon Community Services. If you like her creative “Food Support Emergency” email list idea you can give her a shout and get added to the list.
I saw this initiative being used by another Ontario food bank. I thought that this might help us here in Caledon when our shelves are getting low in food supplies; especially in the summer time.
I am creating a “Food Support Emergency” email list. The purpose of this distribution list is to inform you via email whenever there is a shortage of specific food items on our shelves. We hope that once you receive these messages, we can count on you donating one or two food items to help fill the gap. Please respond to me to let me know if you would consider being on this distribution list. Also, if you know of anyone else that would consider being added, please forward this email to them and have them confirm by email back to me.
Food donations can be made directly to CCS, 18 King Street in Bolton, the bin at Bolton Walmart or the bin at Bolton Zehrs. We pick up regularly at those two locations.
