On December 20th, the Upper Oakville Shopping Centre donated just over 550 pounds of non-perishable food items to the Fareshare Food Bank in Oakville. The donation was the culmination of a four week long food drive that saw the centre’s customers generously bringing items to the drop box in their favourite store.
“Our tenants and their customers really stepped up and made this food drive a great success. We were really pleased with both the amount and the kinds of items we received,” said Megan Richardson, the Centre’s Manager. A total of 37 bags were collected, each weighing approximately 15 pounds. “A special thank you to the Upper Oakville Chiropractic Centre and their clients, who made the biggest contribution to our donation, and the owner of Head Over Heals who donated five bags himself.”
