This years ‘Covid friendly’ Drive Thru layout enabled us to collect Calgary Food Bank donations safely, take down competition entries and even deliver pumpkins directly into the trunk, without visitors having to leave their cars! Halloween treats and Scenic Acres Dental goodie bags were also handed out safely using long tongs. All volunteers were masked and those visiting us were able to remain safely inside their vehicles, most likely with heated seats due to the -11 degree weather! A special mention goes to the wonderful dragon costume, along with animals, princesses and super heroes who dressed up especially for our event. Thank you all for taking the time to donate and collect your pumpkins from us.
The beautiful gift basket, donated by Leslie, was won by Ashley from Scenic Acres and Mike from Arbour Lake was our closest guess for the Halloween Candy treat Jar, congratulations both. Thank you to everybody who donated, an impressive $474.00 was raised in cash and 540lbs of food was collected by the Calgary Food Bank.
We would also like to express our gratitude to our hardy band of volunteers Peggy, Connor, Brianna, Matt & Mike and our pre-event snow clearers Will, Sam and Dino.
