Barrie-Innisfil Conservative Association raises $3,300 for local food banks

Pair of cheques presented on Monday

A local effort to raise funds has paid off for a pair of food banks.

A recent push by the Barrie-Innisfil Conservative Association for donations towards the Barrie and Innisfil Food Banks has resulted in $3,300 being split between the two organizations. “By donating $1,650 to each of the Barrie and Innisfil Food Banks, the Barrie-Innisfil Conservative Association has recognized the important work being done to support the community during the pandemic,” said Barrie-Innisfil MP John Brassard ahead of Monday’s cheque presentations.

The Barrie Food Bank and the Innisfil Food Bank each received a cheque for $1,650, presented by Brassard and Conservative Association president Joshua Valler. “We are extremely thankful for the generosity of donors to our local Conservative Association and their support for not just the Association and MP Brassard but also the Food Banks in Barrie and Innisfil,” said Valler.
