Within a period of six hours more than 23,000 pounds of food was donated by Pitt Meadows residents. Gwen O’Connell who is a Pitt Meadows City Councillor and Manager of The Wesbrooke Retirement Centre was the organizer of the event. Her passion to help others resulted in the largest food drive in one day for the Friends in Need Food Bank.
The staff, volunteers and board members are grateful for this much needed event. A big thank you goes out to Gwen and all of the volunteers who participated.
