Thank You to Community - From Food Banks and Salvation Army

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:    In spite of an initial toy donation shortage, residents came through in a big way for local helping agencies ahead of Christmas.

 

For the seventh consecutive year, the local Inter-Faith and Lethbridge Food banks joined forces with the Salvation Army to eliminate a duplication of services as they help the less fortunate at Christmas.

 

The three agencies helped fill 1945 household food hampers with Christmas 'fixings", which provided for more than 4323 people. Of that number, 2659 were adults and 1664 were children.

 

The agencies recorded a 6% in the number of households it served last month, compared to December of 2012, and a 9% increase in the number of individuals.

 

The majority of the donations received by the Lethbridge Food Bank, Salvation Army and Interfaith Food Bank come in during the Christmas season. The surplus in food and funds helps meet demand through the beginning of the New Year. However, that suprlus will be quickly depleted and the agencies will continue recruiting donations in the months to come, in order to meet ongoing demand throughout the year.
