UPDATE: Our food packages are now sold out thanks to the generous community. If you didn't get a chance to participate in this program, we encourage you to send your donation directly to the local food bank. You can call (705) 812-6500 to arrange a donation, or click here for more information on how to give back.
Our mission at MidlandToday is to strengthen the communities we serve and in the spirit of strengthening the Midland community, we are spearheading a food drive in support of the Georgian Bay Food Network.
The holidays can be a stressful time for many families and now more than ever, the Georgian Bay Food Network needs our help to keep the shelves stocked.
In response to that need, our friends at Maurice’s Your Independent Grocer Midland donated food packages for our loyal readers to purchase through an online pop-up store.
MidlandToday then matched whatever was purchased as a cash donation.
But that’s not all.
We know that Midland is full of caring individuals and businesses who would generously donate to this initiative as well. So, we contacted a number of local businesses to see if they would also like to match reader contributions with a cash donation.
As a result, for every gift card purchased in our pop-up store from now until Dec. 15 at 12 p.m., each dollar will be matched three times and all proceeds will go directly to the food bank. That means your $25 donation will be turned into a $100 donation!
That means for every food package purchased in our pop-up store from now until Dec. 15 at 12 p.m., each dollar will be matched and all proceeds will go directly to the Georgian Bay Food Network.
Here is how you can buy a gift card in support of the food bank:
- Log in to your MidlandToday account (or register for free).
- Select a food package you would like to donate and enter your credit card details.
- Check the 'Confirm’ button and click ‘Donate’ to confirm your purchase.
- That's it, you did it! You gave back to our community this holiday season.
Thanks to Maurice’s Your Independent Grocer Midland for donating the food packages for this initiative, and to Brooklea Golf & Country Club and Superior Home Health Care for joining us in matching each donation.
MidlandToday is proud to lead this worthwhile cause in an effort to reduce hunger and poverty in our community, particularly as the holiday season draws near.
Programs like this and support from businesses and community members - like you - help us to give back to Midland.
