The Vankleek Hill Food Bank is now accepting donations by e-transfer. The disruption in events, cancellations and, for instance, the closure of the secondhand store in Vankleek Hill which raises funds for the food bank, will have an impact on food banks, shelters and other support organizations. The government announced support earlier today. This is a photo from a few months ago, showing the Vankleek Hill and District Lions Club donating to the Vankleek Hill Food Bank. Seen here are: Lion Richard Couperus, Rev James Douglas, Jane McGurk, Lion Armand Lapierre and LionTony Chenel.

Vankleek Hill Food Bank can now accept donations by e-transfer; two volunteers are keeping food bank open

The Vankleek Hill Food Bank will be open as long as it is permitted to stay open. Note that the volunteer staff has been reduced to two (a husband and wife team) and they are taking extra cautions to sanitize everything, including wiping down all of the food items assembled in food baskets.

Food will be left outside the food bank door for pick-up.

If you need support from the food bank, you can call 613-678-8119.

And if you would like to donate to the Vankleek Hill Food Bank, there is good news! You can now donate by e-transfer. Note that you will have to include your name and mailing address if you would like a charitable donation receipt when you send an email to: [email protected]

Note that this email address is the same one to be used for your e-transfer donation.

The thrift shop, located on Home Avenue (look for the door in the mural), is closed until further notice. Volunteers are asking you to NOT leave any bags of donated clothing at the door. But after this situation is over, those donations will be very welcome! The sale of secondhand clothing supports the food bank, so any donations made by e-transfer will be welcome at this time.
