Food Drive Success!
By Curtis Biehler

Thank you for your donations! On September 30th, the Reckman and Biehler families got together to do a food drive in the North End in support of the Welcome Inn. This was our fourth year doing it and the generosity of the neighbourhood was fantastic.

We were really proud of our children ranging in age from 3 to 8 who went door to door and collected an amazing 1647 pounds of food and $40.00. Thank you to everyone who donated showing again that working together can make a difference. We plan on doing it again next year so have a look out for us.

The Welcome Inn is a wonderful organization located here in our neighbourhood supporting a wide range of programs for everyone from children to seniors. One of the programs they organize is an emergency food bank which helps the growing number of families experiencing hunger. Visit for more information on the services provided.
