On Dec. 1, Brock Township firefighters invite the public to help them fill a firetruck with food in support of the Brock Community Food Bank.
Starting at 10 a.m., the firefighters will be stationed outside Fisher’s Your Independent Grocer in Beaverton to collect goods from kind-hearted shoppers.
Chris Gillespie, the Station Chief in Beaverton, says this event has been going on for eight years. He says he understands the food bank is “falling a little short lately” and he’s hoping this event, organized by the firefighters with food bank volunteers, can help turn that around.
“The goal is to raise as much money and food donations as possible before Christmas,” he says.
