McMillan Motor Products had their SUV parked at Kipling’s Community Centre for anyone to stop by and bring their non-perishable food donations throughout the evening on Dec. 21, an event which coincided with the town’s light judging. And that they did, filling the vehicle with bags of food items sure to bring holiday spirit to anyone in need.
“It’ll be a yearly event,” comments Trevor Hack of McMillan Motor Products.
And the Kipling Food Bank is very grateful for the planning of this event, thanks to Dominique Sauve, staff member of McMillan’s.
“Since COVID-19 we (the Food Bank) have not been as busy,” explains Wayne Struble. A notification was put out for anyone to stop in and make use of the Kipling Food Bank.
“The bins at the grocery stores have been pretty good,” says Norman Korfman, also with the food bank. Brenda Korfman echoed the statement.
“It has been excellent and since COVID there have been more cash donations.”
“At the latest event McMillan’s kicked off, there has been a lot of product donated,” says Wayne Struble.
“It doesn’t seem to matter when there’s a function or whether there’s a word put out that the Food Bank needs help ….it just happens!” said Wayne.
“It’s just wonderful the way people respond,” adds Wayne.
“We are so appreciate for all the donations,” adds Gloria Struble. “The support is so great.”
Many volunteers come out to lend a hand on Food Bank days.
The Food Bank is very well stocked and fully functional so if you’re in need please don’t hesitate to come out. No vouchers are needed as they are no longer necessary since COVID-19 has hit.
“If you’re hungry…..come!” states Wayne.
The Kipling Food Bank is located downstairs in the Kipling Professional Building (across from the Post Office).
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Wayne Struble at 306-736-2927 or Norman and Brenda Korfman at 306-736-2706.
The Food Bank is open every second and fourth Wednesday from 1 to 3 pm.
