Nicki Wood and Don Pettem from Airdrie's Sobey's Store present a large cheque to Airdrie Food Bank executive director, Lori McRitchie.

Everyone was all smiles as Sobey's made a donation to the Airdrie Food Bank on Friday, August 31.

Sobey's store manager Don Pettem says Sobey's has been a long time supporter of the Airdrie Food Bank. Twice a year Sobey's raises money for the Food Bank through special events. The most recent is "Christmas in July'.

Lori McRitchie, executive director of the Airdrie Food Bank is grateful for all that Sobey's does to support the organization, saying this donation comes at a particularly important time of year.

Sobey's donation will also help to support regular programs at the Airdrie Food Bank. At the moment, there is a particular need for some "most wanted" items.
