Grocery pickup: Niagara Lions collect truckloads of donations for Newark Neighbours

 








 

The Niagara Lions had their arms full Saturday as they collected two truckloads of food donations for Newark Neighbours, thanks to the generosity of Niagara-on-the-Lake residents.

With tables set up outside NOTL's two Independent Grocers – Phil's in Virgil and Hendriks in Old Town – the Lions managed to take in some much needed supplies to help restock the food bank at Newark Neighbours.

"The Niagara Lions are so appreciative of the generosity of our community in their contributions for this year's Easter food drive," said club spokesperson Dorothy Soo-Wiens.

Cindy Grant, food bank manager for Newark Neighbours, said the organization is extremely grateful for the help and that shelves are once again stocked.

“There was a full pickup truck load overflowing with food. It was terrific and yet again another wonderful demonstration of the gener- osity of this community.”
