The Great Holiday Food Drive


Community Care of St. Catharines & Thorold is celebrating 100 years of giving - and we want YOU to help create holiday magic with us at the Great Holiday Food Drive!

Join NewsTalk 610 CKTB, 97.7 HTZ-FM and 105.7 EZ Rock Friday December 13th at Market Square in Downtown St. Catharines. Bring your food and monetary donations to help us STUFF A BUS for Commity Care and stay for refreshments, choirs, and events happening throughout the day.


THIS YEAR - WE’RE PARKING THE BUS AT: Market Square in Downtown St. Catharines PLUS we'll be collecting at Zehrs Markets at the Pen Centre. 



If you can’t make it out but still want to make a donation, you can text GIVE to 20222 right now to make a $10 or $25 donation directly to Community Care St. Catharines and Thorold.  Monetary donations are income tax receipt eligible and allows Community Care to stretch dollars 5 - 1.

For example: instead of buying a can of beans for Community Care, if you donate the money instead they can leverage partnerships with various grocery stores to buy 5 cans of beans for that same price.
