Hotdogs in exchange for contributions

WELLINGTON – Oct. 19, 2020 –
Many customers took advantage of the barbecue at the Wellington Co-op on Friday, Oct. 16, to enjoy a free hotdog and bottle of water after donating non-perishable foods or money (a total of $483.85) to the Evangeline region’s community food drive. Employees and board members from the Co-op and Évangéline-Central Credit Union prepared and served the food. They even received some assistance from representatives of the West Prince Caring Cupboard food bank (Tyne Valley branch). It is this food bank that will receive the many boxes of food that have been collected; this food will be distributed to area families in need. The food drive continues until Wednesday, Oct. 21. The organizers of the drive thank all those who have already made a contribution and encourage all those who have not yet contributed to do their part (according to their means). Everyone who makes a contribution to the food drive will get a chance to win a nice prize, including a pressure washer.
