Canadian Tire Cobourg is kicking off the new year with a generous $6,000 donation to support the work of Northumberland County’s Food 4 All Warehouse. This latest donation builds upon their previous substantial donations over the past several years to help alleviate hunger in the community.
“Food 4 All does important work in Northumberland County,” states Peter Puglia, Associate Dealer, Canadian Tire Cobourg. “We are pleased to support their efforts, especially in these difficult times.”
The County’s Food 4 All Warehouse supplies local food banks, not-for-profit community agencies and school nutrition programs with food and essential items.
Each year, more than 1.3 million pounds of food and other needed items are distributed to over 120 local organizations and programs throughout the community to support food security in Northumberland.
“We are immensely grateful to Mr. Puglia and the Canadian Tire Cobourg team for their continued dedication to giving back to the community and supporting those in need,” states County Facilities and Food Security Services Manager Rob O’Neil.
“Each year, over 4,200 residents access food support in our community. Generous donations like this help ensure the shelves are stocked with food and essential items at our local food banks and food security programs. Together, we are able to work toward fostering a community where no one faces hunger alone.”
