The Town of Morinville is hoping residents will help fill the Morinville Food Bank’s shelves this year by making donations at the Fill-a-Bus event taking place during the Lite Up the Nite weekend Nov. 22 and 23.

Last year’s tally came up a little light from other years at 3474 lbs. This past summer,
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came through in Morinville and area collecting 5900 pounds of non-perishable food donations to help restock the local food bank.

The Town Bus will make the rounds of businesses and schools Nov. 22 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and then park at No Frills and Sobeys on Nov. 23 to accept donations. Non-perishable food items, cleaning and personal care items, and cash donations are accepted.

On Friday, November 23 the Morinville Community Bus will be at No Frills from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at Sobeys from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Those wishing to register their business as a collection point should contact Community Services at 780-939-7839.
