We always welcome donations to the Hinton Food Bank.
The Hinton Food Bank Association is planning to raise an estimated amount of $250,000 this year on Fund Raising Campaigns. This amount consists of donations of both cash and food items. It will cost our organization an estimated $5,000 to raise this. The money raised will be going to the purchase of food items for disbursement to needy persons and families in our community.
Preferred method- Online Transfer: E-transfer donation to Hinton Food Bank at Treasurer.firstname.lastname@example.org and include your full name and mailing address in the message so we can send you a tax receipt at the end of the year.
