BROCKVILLE – The city’s food bank has received just over $11,000 to help stock the shelves.
Michael Newman, manager of the Brockville Metro, presented Brockville and Area Food Bank co-chair JoAnne Sytsma with a cheque this month for $11,154.
The money was raised during a Christmas seasonal campaign where customers donated $2 when going through the cash.
“The Brockville Metro raised the most monies it has ever raised for a single event, which as Newman noted is outstanding for a community of this size,” a food bank spokesman said in a statement.
It was also “one of the highest” fundraisers for Metro stores in Ontario.
