“Two Guys” LaSalle Can Drive Returns For 2020
Local Co-Workers plan 2nd annual 48 hour Christmas Event to benefit the LaSalle Foodbank
Two local co-workers have teamed up for the second year in a row to host a weekend-long can drive at Reaume Chevrolet Buick GMC in LaSalle, ON starting Friday, December 4 at 6 p.m.
The two friends and co-workers came up with the idea last year after hearing about the need in their local community. This year, the COVID-19 crisis has created even more of a shortage of donations, leaving a portion of the population in a vulnerable position.
“Not everyone understands that there is such a need in our backyard. At our facility, we help over 67 families including over 35 children currently and we’ve seen usage increase greatly. We are really in need of hygiene and household products to get them the essentials.” – Deb Wilkinson, LaSalle Foodbank
Over the weekend of December 4, 5, and 6 the “Two Guys” will be ready to safely accept all non-perishable food and hygiene items and load up their waiting cube van. The goal is to fill the shelves of the local LaSalle Foodbank and help lift the spirits of those families in need and affected by hardship this holiday season. Any overflow of donations will be handed out to Street Help of Windsor.
“We figure we can go without some sleep for a couple nights if it means helping kids and families in our community,” Atherton comments.
It is easy and convenient for anyone to support the event!
“All you have to do is pull up to 500 Front Road and pop your trunk and we’ll do the rest,” explains Martin. “Last year we had a young man drive up at 3 a.m. and drop off one can, that meant a lot that he gave what he could when he could.”
