On Saturday, October 5th, Tremblett’s valu-mart hosted a BBQ and Thanksgiving hamper build in support of Sarah’s Food Drive. From noon until 5, Rob and Jessi Tremblett hosted a BBQ. Hamburgers and hot dogs were available in return for a donation to Sarah’s Food Drive.

Over 30 local kids then helped build 160 Thanksgiving hampers that were purchased by customers of Tremblett’s, as well as local businesses.

The hampers were also part of a challenge from Kraft Canada — where Kraft donated $100 for every hamper purchased (up to $10,000). Kraft Canada was on hand to hand over a cheque for $10,000!

Over $750 was raised from the BBQ, and over 20 bins of food were picked up by The Daily Bread Food Bank.

A great way to end the first week of the food drive! There is still one week to go. The drive ends on October 13th.

Here are some pictures from the day:

Thank you to everyone who purchased a hamper or volunteered on Saturday to help build the hampers!

One week to go! We still need your help!
