Keep The Miracle Alive

Two years ago, June 27th took on a new meaning for residents in Windsor Essex.

It was a day of community, kindness and support during the world’s largest food drive. It was a miracle in fact — and it happened here twice!

In 2020 and 2021, millions of pounds of food were donated to those in need during the June 27th Miracle. (Learn more at: June27Miracle.ca).

Even though the world seems to be headed into a new normal now, it doesn’t mean food insecurity has gone away. Food bank usage is at an all-time high, while food bank donations are at all-time lows.

It’s time for the community to come together once again to stock the shelves of area charities and food banks!

Although porch pick-ups and donation centres are not taking place as in previous years, the Miracle can continue, with your help.

The June 27th Organizing Committee — Tracey Bailey, Bill Johnson, Jennifer Stokes, Kelsey Coon, Kendal Malewicz, Morgan Ryan, Noah Campbell, Spencer Briguglio, Sue Desjarlais, Talya Natyshak, Tera Gillen Petrozzi, and Matt Hernandez — encourages businesses, coworkers, families and friends to drop off a donation to a food bank or charity of your choice on June 27th, with the Miracle in mind.

For a list of the most needed items please visit online: CommunitySupportCentre.ca/food-pantry. Your contribution, large or small, can make a huge impact on those who need it most.

Check the website of the Windsor Essex Food Bank Association — to find a food bank in your area where you can take your donations.

So let’s keep the spirit alive of past Miracle Days . . . accept the challenge to shop and drop! I know I will!
