At our Home Opener this weekend, we will be collecting food items and money donations for the Medicine Hat Food Bank.
The wish list of items the food bank is most in need of include:
Donating food is always welcome! We suggest that you only bring food here that you would feel comfortable serving in your own home.
These Wish List items are always needed:
small peanut butters
canned meats – tuna, chicken, ham, turkey
2 in 1 shampoos
feminine hygiene products
save those mini hotel shampoos etc (we bag for emergency hampers)
and of course, we are always happy to receive other items
The easiest thing to consider is if you had to start fresh what would you need?
The following items are things we require, or would help make our jobs more efficient.
