The Sudbury Police Association has come through once again for the Sudbury Food Bank, generously donating $20,000. 

The Sudbury Police Association is comprised of those members that are not part of management; the front line workers and civilians behind the scenes.

These members of the service are the people that come into contact with so many citizens who are struggling throughout the year, even more so now, that the membership wanted to assist. 

"When it was realized that donations in the way of goods could not be accepted and, only cash donations were being accepted, compounded by the reality that not many have spare money to donate during this pandemic, we thought this was an opportunity to assist, to make a difference," said Sudbury Police Association president Randy Buchowski. 

It was also explained that this money would allow the Food Bank to purchase large volumes of product, as they are given significant discounts on wholesale products which would increase the value to three or four times its purchasing power in a regular retail setting.
