The numbers are in and we’re delighted to announce the 3rd Annual SavourVaughan Thanksgiving Food Drive benefiting the Vaughan Food Bank was a tremendous success. Despite the inclement weather, the kick off event at Fortinos this past Saturday raised an impressive $16,000.00+ in cash alone, plus hundreds of thousands of non-perishable food items.

Our goal is to reach $20,000 in cash alone by Thanksgiving so we’re almost there. Each and every family deserves a great Thanksgiving meal and collectively as a community we can help ensure this happens. There’s still time to make a donation. You can easily do so by downloading the donation form, CLICK HERE or at any TD CANADA TRUST Vaughan District location: Food Bank Account Number: 5017654 1898. Every penny helps, there’s no donation too little. Non perishable food item donations can also be dropped off at the Vaughan Fire Rescue Fire Stations, the Vaughan Citizen head office, Fortinos, BDC and at any TD CANADA TRUST or RBC Vaughan Location. For a complete list of branch locations, CLICK HERE.

Special thanks to TD Canada Trust Bank Vaughan District, The Knights of Columbus St. Peter's Council in Woodbridge and the Vaughan Firefighters for their ongoing support. Also thanks to RBC, The Carpenters’ Union, BDC, The Hair Crew, SmartCentres, Gold Park Group, Tacc and Zero 20 Bambini for their support with the Cash & Cans Challenge.

And congratulations to contest winners Maria Scenna, W.T. Chard and Laurie Mobilio who each won a prize package just for stopping by and making a donation!
