Social media campaign results in holiday bounty for food bank
An online campaign has resulted in a donation of 1,544 items and $600 to the Brock Community Food Bank.
Adeline Khoo Pettit, PeggyLee McLean and Colin Theodoru – the administrators of Facebook pages Brock Ultimate Deals and Beaverton Treasure Finds – dropped off the massive donation on Saturday (Dec. 16) morning.
The trio recently went on a shopping spree to purchase the donated items, with money raised by members through online auctions, items donations and cash donations.
“PeggyLee, Colin and myself would like to thank every single person who donated to make this resounding success…everyone should be so proud,” Petit said in a social media post.
“We love our community and all it stands for. All of you are so special, you are the love and soul of our community and that’s why we continue to do this.”
