Although our Thrift Shop remains closed, the Newark Neighbours Food Bank continues to serve those in need. The past couple of months have presented challenges, however, as a result of our dedicated volunteers and the generosity of this community, I am pleased to say we are running smoothly each week.
A huge thank you goes out to all those kind individuals who have sent us monetary donations or dropped off food for our clients. I would also like to thank our volunteers who have been willing and able to be at the food bank each week to accept donations and provide food to our clients. Make some noise for them!
We continue to be amazed by the generous donations made by groups in our community. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the following organizations for their support:
Hendrik’s Valu Mart, Simpson’s Pharmacy, LTD Distillery, Vineland Growers, St. Davids Lions Club, Mr. Furnace, St. Andrew’s Church, Kent Farms, Walker’s Country Market, The Scottish Loft, NOTL Pickleball Club, NOTL Tuesday Golf Ladies, Stone Road Village residents, Lewiston Rotary Club, Locomotive Market, St. Davids Firefighters, OPSEU Local 215, St. Davids-Queenston United Church and Ekocouture Inc.
Newark Neighbours has also been able to provide material for groups making masks and donated warm clothing to some of the farm workers in need.
Our food bank is open each Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:30 until noon. We can accept food donations at this time, however we ask that you still hold on to any clothing or household donations until we are able to reopen our Thrift Store.
Please contact us at 905-468-3519 should you or someone you know need assistance with food.
