The Assiniboine Community College Students’ Association and Brandon University Students’ Union are teaming up once again with the Samaritan House Ministries for the 2020 Halloween Food Drive!
Students of both post-secondary institutions, along with many other community volunteers, will be heading out on Saturday, October 31st between 5:00pm and 9:00pm to collect non-perishable food items and donations to be used by both the Samaritan House Food Bank, and the BUSU Food Bank.
The safety of everyone involved, in particular the volunteers, is of the upmost importance. With that in mind, safety measures have been put in place to ensure proper social distancing is attainable, while also allowing the ease of Brandon citizens to provide nonperishable food item donations from the comfort of their front step.
Halloween Food Drive stickers will be distributed in the Thursday, October 29th edition of the Brandon Sun. These can be peeled and affixed to a bag or box and left out on front steps for a Halloween Food Drive Volunteer to collect during the Halloween Food Drive.
For households that will not be participating in Halloween Trick-or-Treating, or feel unsafe having volunteers come to their door, donations of food items & cash donations may be dropped off directly at the Samaritan House Food Bank located at 820 Pacific Ave.
Halloween Food Drive organizers may be required to cancel this event on short notice based on directions from Public Health Orders in Brandon. For the most updated information, please visit http://www.busu.ca/ or https://accstudents.com/.
