VOCM Cares Foundation and Metrobus in partnership with Sobeys, are once again hosting a Thanksgiving Food Drive in St. John’s metro and surrounding areas from October 1-12. Please join us as we support the Community Food Sharing Association by donating non-perishable food items at the following participating Sobeys locations:
- Kelsey Drive

Donations can also be dropped off at regular Metrobus routes. For those outside metro area, please consider donating non-perishable food items to a local food bank. Monetary donations are accepted and appreciated at cfsa.nf.net
With the help of local communities, the Thanksgiving food drive will support individuals and families in need, and aid food banks in their goal that no one goes hungry.
