CORNWALL, Ontario – The Wine Rack at Baxtrom’s Your Independent Grocer is having a food drive in support of the Agapè Centre.

From now until June 30, 2018, the Wine Rack is accepting non-perishable food items, such as canned goods and monetary donations for the Agapè Centre.

“We decided to do something very Cornwall focused and give back to the community because we’re part of the community,” said Kat Greffe, Store Manager.

Those donating canned goods or $5 to Wine Rack will be getting one of their handy tote bags.

 “At this time of year, we are extremely low on canned foods,” said Lynne Groulx, Fund Development Coordinator with the Agapè Centre. She explained that donations to the Agapè Centre tend to dip in the summer months. “Our need stays the same, we have 100 to 160 people using our soup kitchen daily and our food bank served 125 families a week.”

The Wine Rack has a goal of 1,000 pounds of goods, and $500 in gift cards for local grocery stores which will be donated to the Agapè Centre.
