09, 2005:- Approximately 500 Mine Mill 598/CAW retired members and their
spouses, joined each other to share a meal and an afternoon
brought non-perishable food items to donate to our food bank.
Approximately 2,000 pounds of food was collected because of the
generosity from the people who attended the Christmas gathering. Geoffrey
Lougheed told us that 13,000 people in our community use the food bank on a
monthly basis and our contribution would certainly help stock the shelves.
Over $700 was raised to donate to Camp Quality, a non-profit organization who sends children to camp who are suffering from Cancer.
