Politicians, Abby Heat come together to help food bank

A ticket-selling competition between politicians will help raise money for St. Joseph’s Food Bank.

Starting this weekend, and running each Saturday and Sunday until April 7, MLAs Randy Hawes, Marc Dalton, Green Party of BC candidate Aird Flavelle, BC Liberal candidate Simon Gibson, BC NDP candidates Mike Bocking and Preet Rai, plus Mission Mayor Ted Adlem will be working the crowds at a number of locations locally to sell Abbotsford Heat tickets.

The AHL club has donated the tickets for the April 12 game to St. Joseph’s for this fundraising event. Proceeds will go towards ongoing construction of the Seventh Avenue building.

“This is a great opportunity to support the St. Joseph’s Food Bank in a meaningful way and have some fun, too,” said Ron Leger, volunteer building project manager. “Our shared goal is straightforward at St. Joseph’s Food Bank: feed the needs of those without. Mission is a caring community. This event is another opportunity for each of us to show we care and truly make a difference.”

Welcomed Help

The construction community continues to help bring the St. Joseph’s Food Bank building closer to life with a series of donations. Here, Tim Higginson and Murray Giffen from LaFarge Aggregates and Concrete pose with Vantage Contracting’s Eric Jackman (far left) and Elm Construction’s Wentworth Bjarnason (far right) at the building site on Seventh Avenue. LaFarge has donated $15,000 in aggregate, while Vantage has put forward $12,000 in services, and Elm has provided $10,000 in services. According to accountant Ron Leger, one of the main fundraising organizers, work on the project will slow for a while as tax season approaches, and because the cash accrued so far has run out.
