The Sudbury Police Association recently presented a cheque for $5,000 to the Elgin Street Mission Food Fund.
These funds will go to sponsor weekend meals at the agency, which supports Greater Sudbury's homeless and vulnerable populations.
“The Sudbury Police Association’s donation will provide over 1,200 meals, again reinforcing the association’s commitment to helping others and making the City of Sudbury 'Greater,'” said a press release.
“The meals are prepared with the generosity of the McKenzie Family Tim Horton’s (donating $800 worth of soup) and Sudbury Great Lakes Pizza, giving a 40-per-cent discount and 10 free pizzas.”
The press release said it costs $1,475 to sponsor a weekend's worth of meals at the agency (350 meals).
“To date, many organizations, businesses and people have followed the Sudbury Police Association’s example,” said the press release.
If you would like to sponsor a weekend for the Elgin Street Mission, phone Gerry Lougheed Jr. at 705-673-3611 or the Elgin St. Mission at 705-673-2163.
