Portland Build a Mountain of Food

The 2016 Town and Country Chrysler
Build a Mountain of Food Campaign

The Town and Country Chrysler Build a Mountain of Food Campaign is underway throughout the region! Town and Country Chrysler in Smiths Falls, along with participating media partners, Metroland Media, TV Cogeco, Lake 88 Radio, and Town and Country TV (TCTV), have joined forces to support area food banks to help fill the shelves this holiday season.

Area food banks continue to play a vital role, providing necessary assistance to the many faces of hunger in our communities, including seniors, single parents, the working poor, and unfortunately, many children.

Again this year, the Town and Country Chrysler Build a Mountain of Food Campaign is taking place in 11 local towns and villages in support of local food banks. The communities include Almonte, Carleton Place, Perth, Lanark, Smiths Falls, Westport, Elgin, Portland, Merrickville, Athens, and Delta.

On Saturday, 10 December 2016, the campaign arrived in Portland, where, once again the generosity of Portland individuals pushed the campaign over the top of previous years with donations totaling
– over 4,000 lbs. of food
 – $7,640 in cash donations
 
Merrickville:
 – 1,350 lbs. of food
 – $190.00 in cash donations
 
This brings the current campaign totals to:
 – 145,529 lbs. of food
 – $80,676.39 in cash donations
 
Next week, it’s week 6, and a big finish as the campaign concludes in Athens and Delta. The first stop is in Athens at the Athens Fresh Market at 9:00 a.m. until noon, then it’s off to the last stop in Delta from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Delta Country Market.
