As a member of the Greater Moncton Sunrise Rotary Club, I was pleased to be on hand yesterday when we donated the first $5,000 for Food Depot Alimentaire‘s (FDA) 2012 Christmas Box Campaign.

This year’s goal is to raise $138,750 to provide Christmas food boxes to 1,850 families in the Greater Moncton area. Each box costs approximately $75 to fill. A turkey from the annual Sue Stultz Turkey Drive will also be included in each box.

This is an excellent initiative that FDA is taking over from Moncton Headstart, which ran the campaign previously. Last year, the two collaborated for one transition year. This year, FDA is taking it on themselves.

To make a donation to the 2012 Christmas Box Campaign, drop by Food Depot Alimentaire at 330 MacNaughton Avenue in the Caledonia Industrial Park or donate online via CanadaHelps.org. Click here for important information about food and monetary donations to FDA.
