Corey Evans got a tour of the Cobourg Fare Share building to see where her donations are headed.
“I came out in tears knowing the need is very real in Northumberland County for residents.”
Evans did something to try and help out the Food Bank and posted on her Out & About Northumberland County Facebook group about collecting funds or food for the Cobourg Fare Share Food Bank from July 3 to July 21.
“Many families that have 2 working parents sometimes need the extra help. The cost of living makes it so very hard.”
After making a few posts on her Facebook group about what was needed, the donations started coming in with the drive
Members from Port Hope to Brighton and every town in between helped donate for the couse.
“We have the most caring community there is. If there is a need, these members step up and help with whatever they can.”
A total of $805.00 and 1,239 pounds of food was donated.
“I cannot say how happy and proud I am of the group. It’s so gratifying to know as a group we helped a very good cause “
