Peace Lutheran Church and St. Matthew Anglican church reach their collective goal of collecting 2022 lbs of food in the Lenten season for donation to Archway Community Food Bank. We hope our little friendly competition will help fill the gap for the nearly 4000 Abbotsford residents that utilize the food bank every month..
St Matthew is the winner, 1460.5 lbs donated. Peace was next with 800lbs donated. The runner-up will host the winner.at a tea later this year. This competition is one of several that have been held between the two parishes with the goal of increasing generosity through friendly competition- the benefits going to community organizations and their clients.
We thank everyone who contributed or help organize this event.
