Agassiz and Harrison youth gather food bank items in front of Super Valu Saturday during the Stuff a Truck event.

35,0000 food items collected in Stuff A Truck event!

Agassiz Community Services one of two organizations to benefit from the fundraiser, done in part by Harrison Gospel Chapel youth

A huge thank you to the communities of Chilliwack and Agassiz for the support that you showed this past weekend at our 3rd “STUFF A TRUCK” event. With your support of non-perishable food items, youth from Harrison Gospel Chapel, Central Community Church and Sardis Baptist were able to collect nearly 35,000 food items for our local Salvation Army Community Food Bank and Agassiz Community Services.

Over the last three years, this event has raised nearly 77,000 food items.  There is no doubt in our minds that the need in our community is great, but when we work together, we can make a difference and end hunger! Thank you again for your compassionate support. We would also like to acknowledge and thank many of our community sponsors for their help and partnership: Super-Valu, Save-On-Foods (Downtown), Superstore, Coastal Mountain Fuels, Fraser Valley Custom Printers, Denbow, The Chilliwack Progress, The Agassiz Harrison Observer, Hunger Awareness Week, and 89.5 The Drive.

For more information about next year’s event please contact Pastor Jonathan Kornelsen at 604-792-8037 or email: office@central365.org
