Last night’s Lights and Sirens Food bank drive in Wembley was another overwhelming success. Even though the 3,260 food items was down slightly from last year, Wembley Fire Department administrator Jamie Querin says the shelves at the Food Bank will still be overflowing for some time.
“The ladies that are volunteering to help with the food bank said it will probably take them another 2 or 3 days to get everything organized and dated and put back on the shelf and see where they are at. But when we left the United Church, the pews were overflowing.”
Querin thanks everyone in Wembley for their donations, as well as the volunteers from both the fire department and Encana for going door to door to collect the food.
