Community Care Apsley – Thanks
Dear Loon Call Lake Cottagers Association
The Board of the North Kawartha Food Bank wishes to thank you all for your recent generous donation of food. The whole community has been so quick to respond to the needs of our clients during the pandemic and we are very grateful.
As a result of the generosity of the community we are able to cancel all our fundraising this year which makes it safer for our volunteers who have worked hard to keep the food bank open as usual. We have enough money to take us through the winter which is wonderful. We will miss the fun of our annual Loonie Night but hopefully we will see everyone again in the fall of 2021.
We hope that you have all had a restful summer on the lake and wish you all the best for the uncertainties of opening up in the Fall.
With our thanks and best wishes,
Chair, North Kawartha Food Bank.
