The campaign has now come to a close and in total with the corporate match Shell employees and retirees were able to raise $8,150 for the Strathcona Food Bank Association. Through the campaign Shell was able to raise over $250,000 that will go to 50 food banks across Canada. We are very grateful to Shell Canada, it’s employees and retirees for their generosity.

Thank you to everyone for donating your cans and bottles to the two April bottle drives held at Bethel Lutheran Church.  What began as one person starting a bottle collection in his neighbourhood transformed into a community-wide event.  Thank you to Alan Gosse for originating the idea of the bottle drive and for coordinating the  use of the Fort Road Bottle Depot trucks and trailers. Also thank you to Pastor Marv Ziprick for coordinating volunteers for the two events.  Thank you to all the volunteers who laboured long into the evening squishing bottles and cans into all the trailers.  Thank you also to Manjeet from Fort Road Bottle Depot for the multiple trips hauling trucks and trailers.  With the two drives the Strathcona Food Bank received over $25,000.  We could not operate our Food Bank without the generous and selfless giving of our community!
