UPDATE:We are thrilled to announce that our current total for this year’s “Blitz” collection was $4,507 and just over 38,000 lbs. of food. We will continue to count donations through to the end of the month as we normally do, so these numbers will increase. We would like to thank all of our incredible volunteers for hosting the collection sites and the grocery stores that allowed us to set up on Saturday. Thanks as well to all the local media who helped to get our message out to the community and to all our generous donors who made this a successful campaign.
