THE Guru Nanak Food Bank (GNFB) successfully organized a two-day school supply drive aimed at supporting students in need as they prepare for the upcoming school session. The drive took place on August 26 in Delta and August 27 in Surrey, with an overwhelming show of community support and participation.

The Delta drive witnessed the enthusiastic involvement of the Delta Police team, Councillor Jessie Dosanjh, Councillor Jennifer Johal, Delta Police Chief Neil Dubord, and the Delta Chamber of Commerce. Delta Mayor George V. Harvie sent a generous donation through Councillor Dosanjh.

The Surrey drive on August 27 saw the eager participation of volunteers from Surrey Police Service, Surrey Crime Prevention, Abbotsford Canucks, and Surrey Fire Fighters.

Surrey Mayor Brenda Locke and Labour Minister Harry Bains were also present to show their support.

Youth volunteers associated with the Guru Nanak Food Bank played a pivotal role in the drive, highlighting their enthusiasm and commitment to community service.

The President of the Guru Nanak Food Bank, Narinder Singh, expressed sincere gratitude to all the donors, volunteers, and supporters who came forward to make the school supply drive a resounding success. Neeraj Walia, Operations Head of Guru Nanak Food Bank, said that those who couldn’t make it to the two-day event could still drop off their donations at either the Delta or Surrey locations.

Additionally, during the summer vacation, over 50 school children who have been actively participating as volunteers with the Guru Nanak Food Bank will be honoured at a lunch on September 4 at the Delta location.
