WHAT'S HAPPENING AT MCKILLOP:
We are collecting donations on the 6th and 7th of APRIL that will then be delivered to the Food Bank.
Items like canned soup, pasta, formula, peanut butter, and canned tuna are always appreciated and will go on to feed those in need in our community!
You can drop off donations the first and second of each month between the hours of 9am-Noon and 1:30-3:00pm.
If you want, you can also make a donation to the food bank through McKillop by sending a cheque (or just sliding it into our mail slot) or etransfer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will take care of sending it to the Food Bank, and the donation
counts toward your 2021 contributions tax reciept.
