June 27th Miracle Was A Miracle!
Congrat Windsor-Essex! They have released the total for the June 27th Miracle and over 2 million pounds of food has been collected! On June 27th, residents left food donations on their doorsteps and thousands of volunteers went around collecting all the items. Volunteers had to cover over 1,800 squared kilometres by going from home to home to pick up the goods.
Many volunteers were on hand at rural drop off depots to help residents with their donations. The donations went from front porches to arenas in less than 24 hours. Pallets of food filled arenas in Windsor and across Essex County. Organizers have finished calculating of how much food was collected and the estimate is 2,020,500 lbs of food. The items are being delivered to local food banks.
28,850 households or 67,316 individuals will be able to be fed for one year at the various foodbanks!
Congrats Windsor-Essex, you guys rock!
