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.

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.
