On Saturday November 12, 2016 the Auxiliary Members of Barrie and Orillia Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) conducted a food drive for the local food banks. Auxiliary Members hosted the event at both the Craighurst and Coldwater Foodland Grocery Stores all day Saturday.
Thank you to all the people who donated and made this food drive a success. As a result of generous donations there was a total of 3600lbs of food and $1,200 cash collected.
All items collected were donated directly to the two communities they came from. It is estimated that the food will last well into the winter of 2017.
