St. Davids Lionesses collect food and money for Project Share

The St. Davids Lionesses were out Saturday morning collecting food donations to support local families in need this holiday season.

The group started out at 9 a.m. and by 11 a.m. had filled two vehicles with food and raised $300.

“We want to be able to help,” said Anna-Marie Warriner, chair of the food drive committee. “We’re giving it to Project Share, so it means a lot that we can get the community to come together and do this.”

She noted there was a steady stream of traffic coming through with donations.

The food drive is important because there are people in need, Warriner said, adding the Lionesses were “pretty limited” in the fundraising activities they could hold in 2020 due to the global pandemic.

The drive-thru food campaign was one way to give back safely.

“This way, the whole community gets involved,” she said.

By the end of the day, the Lionesses had collected about $500 in cash donations and about 800 pounds of food.
