WELLINGTON – Oct. 20, 2017 – People from the Evangeline area recently donated three overflowing shopping carts of food to the Summerside Salvation Army Food Bank through a food drive organized by the Evangeline-Central Credit Union and the Wellington Co-op. As well, the food bank received $954, which represents half of the revenues from the family benefit Mega-Bingo held Oct. 15.

Captain Abbott sincerely thanked the community for its contribution. He noted that each penny and each food donation helps to feed the 80-110 families who ask for assistance at the food bank each week.
