Campaign for Wetaskiwin Food Bank for Thanksgiving

Legacy Dodge Wetaskiwin and Jordan’s No Frills team up to help community

Two Wetaskiwin businesses are sponsoring a great campaign to help the less fortunate members of our community up to Thanksgiving.

Legacy Dodge Wetaskiwin and Jordan’s No Frills have joined forces to hold non-perishable food donations and cash donations to benefit the Wetaskiwin Food Bank this fall.

Volunteers noted all the proceeds from the campaign will go to charity, and stated they wanted to do something a bit earlier in the season and to help people before Thanksgiving, as this holiday can sometimes be overshadowed by Christmas.

Most of the volunteers live in Wetaskiwin and just wanted to make sure the less fortunate members of the community get what they need before the holiday.

Legacy Dodge Wetaskiwin will be accepting non-perishable food donations at the dealership during their regular business hours right up to Thurs, Oct. 10 (Mon to Thurs 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fri 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sat 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.)

Volunteers from Legacy Dodge Wetaskiwin will be at Jordan’s No Frills located at 5217 50 Ave. in Wetaskiwin for two days, Fri Oct 4 and Sat. Oct. 5 accepting non-perishable food donations and cash donations from noon to 3 p.m. Volunteers note that tax-deductible receipts are available.
