We are thrilled to share the following announcement from Middlesex Mutual Insurance...
Community Spirit Award 2014
The Board of Directors and our Community Spirit Award Committee consisting of John Brennan, Director, Paula Bodkin, Director, Fran Dow, Agent, Danielle Duffenais, Underwriter, and Nancy Preston, President & CEO saw a need in the community and proceeded, without application submissions, to grant the Ailsa Craig & Area Food Bank & Thrift Store with this year’s award of $25,000.00.
The Ailsa Craig & Area Food Bank & Thrift Store is a registered Christian Charitable Organization dedicated to meeting the needs of our community.
The Food Bank is looking to build a new building that will allow them to offer programs to their clients (cooking, canning, budgeting, sewing), increased capacity for fresh foods (walk-in freezer/cold storage), and most importantly a private intake office to allow more privacy and dignity to their clients. To date they have raised $154,537.84.
The Ailsa Craig Food Bank services the Township of Lucan Biddulph, The Municipality of Middlesex Centre and the Municipality of North Middlesex. They also serve approximately half of the Municipality of Lambton Shores covering the communities in the eastern side. Those communities served include Arkona, Grand Bend, Northville, Port Franks and Thedford.
We would like to congratulate the Ailsa Craig & Area Food Bank & Thrift Store.
