On Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022, Frontenac Paramedics will be stationed at FreshCo. for their 11th annual Fill-an-Ambulance Food Drive to benefit clients of Partners in Mission Food Bank.
Frontenac Paramedics volunteers will be at the store from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. collecting cash and non-perishable food items. Bring your donations or purchase FreshCo. supplied pre-assembled bags of food inside the store at 2327 Princess Street.
“These are especially tough economic times for people in our community who may not have ready access to all the good quality food they need,” said Frontenac Paramedic Lise-Anne Lepage-McBain. “I hope you can come see us on Saturday. Your donation will make a big difference to someone this holiday season.”
According to a release from Frontenac County, this is the 11th year Lepage-McBain and groups of Frontenac Paramedics volunteers have partnered with FreshCo. and Partners in Mission to host the Fill-an-Ambulance event. Paramedics collected 2,365lbs of food and $1,136 for Partners in Mission last year.
“Partners in Mission Food Bank does not receive government or agency funding and relies on our community,” said Partners in Mission Director, Dan Irwin. “Groups like Frontenac Paramedics and their Fill-an-Ambulance will help to feed more than 65 Kingston-area neighbours in need. We would like to extend a huge thank-you to Frontenac Paramedics and their families for the work they put into this day. We would also like to thank FreshCo and their clients for their support and donations.”
