Drumheller's Food Bank is getting ready for its busiest season of the year, and they're getting a lot of help.
Westergard Motors asked people to drop by the Ford dealership with donations for the Salvation Army as they prepare to feed local families over Christmas.
"This is the Ford 'We Scare Hunger' campaign," explained sales executive Grant Daly. "We actually didn't raise any money, but we got some really great food items donated from tons of great local people in Drumheller. It was awesome seeing everybody that showed up in the showroom and dropped off some great items to help people eat."
"It's a Ford national campaign and we just thought it was a great opportunity to help out the community locally," chimed in General Sales Manager Steve O'Dwyer. "I think it's a good opportunity to give back to the town and I don't see why we wouldn't continue to run it."
All of the donated food was dropped off at the Food Bank behind the Salvation Army Church on 1 St. West last week.
"I think the shelves are looking a little plumper, for sure," remarked Daly. "There's some nice goodies in there, some good soup, Chef Boyardee, you name it, people brought it: it was awesome to see."
