Posted by Corporate Communications on Tuesday, May 26th, 2020


When:  Wednesday, May 27, 2020
                1 – 3 p.m. (time reduced due to heat warning)

                 Parking lot access available starting at 11 a.m.

Where: Vale Health & Wellness Centre parking lot, 550 Elizabeth Street

                  Parking will take place in the northern section of the parking lot.

                  City of Port Colborne and Port Cares staff and volunteers will direct

What can attendees expect on location?

· Attendees will receive free groceries from an anonymous donor, while quantities last.

· Two portable washrooms and a handwashing station will be on site.
