The Boundary Community Food Bank saw a wellspring of donations pour in from city businesses in the week before Christmas.
Food Bank President Mike Wakelin received a $3,000 check from staff at the Grand Forks Credit Union Friday, Dec. 18. Staff at Castle Renovation Centre and Grand Forks Realty presented him checks for $2,500 and $1,000 the day before.
The businesses’ contributions will go towards food purchases for the food bank’s clients in 2021.
Board Director Margaret Dietrich said the money will help a lot of people who rely on the Food Bank at all times of the year.
“The need doesn’t end after our clients come in on a given Tuesday,” she said.
