Donation provides new ride for local food bank

Mission’s Pioneer Chrysler Jeep recently donated a Dodge Caravan to the St. Joseph’s Food Bank

Mission’s Pioneer Chrysler Jeep recently donated a Dodge Caravan to the St. Joseph’s Food Bank.

The vehicle, worth about $8,000, will be used to help gather food donations.

However, that’s not all that the local business donated.

Back in September, Pioneer donated a television for a raffle, organized by Mission Raceway, that raised an additional $500 for the food bank. Also, the sales staff at Pioneer Chrysler have pledged $2,000 of their own money to the charity.

“The board and volunteers of St. Joseph’s Food Bank wish to thank Pioneer Chrysler Jeep for the gift of a Dodge Caravan to be used in order to pick up and deliver smaller quantities of food donated to the food bank,” said a spokesperson for the charity.

St. Joseph’s Food Bank currently distributes approximately $100,000 worth of food monthly to those in need in the community.

Donations can be made to St. Joseph’s Parish, noting funds to be used for the food bank at 32550 Seventh Ave., Mission, V2V 2B9.

You can also contact executive director Wendy Neigel at 778-201-5000 or via email at wneigel@telus.net.
