Anonymous grocery donor set to sail into Port Colborne

Posted by Corporate Communications on Monday, May 25th, 2020

The residents of Port Colborne will be the next beneficiaries of Niagara’s anonymous grocery donor on Wednesday, May 27, 2020, from 1-3:30 p.m., when the next truckload of free groceries will be unloaded in the Vale Health & Wellness Centre parking lot.

All are welcome to come to the Vale Health & Wellness Centre, 550 Elizabeth Street, to receive free groceries, while quantities last. Staff and volunteers from the City of Port Colborne and Port Cares will be on hand to assist in distributing the groceries. Bags will be provided and items will be distributed following the best practices outlined by Niagara Region Public Health to limit the spread of COVID-19. These include physical distancing and the use of hand wash stations/sanitization of hands.

Since the Port Colborne community bus is currently not operating due to COVID-19, City staff are currently coordinating a bus route for residents who require transportation to the Vale Health & Wellness Centre. Route details will be available in the next day.

This donation comes at a time of need when individuals and families across Niagara are struggling with financial concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Anonymous food donations have already been made in St. Catharines, Welland, Thorold, and Niagara Falls.
