We always welcome donations to the Hinton Food Bank.
The Hinton Food Bank Association is planning to raise an estimated amount of $200,000 this year on Fund Raising Campaigns. This amount consists of donations of both cash and food items. It will cost our organization an estimated $8,000 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.
We will issue and mail a tax receipt to all private donors for all amounts of $25 or more.
To make a donation by mail, please send your contribution to:
11 – 107 Swanson Drive, Hinton AB,
In a monthly ad in the Hinton Voice, we list the food items we need donated the most. (We can’t accept home-made foods) All donations can be dropped into donation boxes at all local grocery stores, Wal-mart customer service area, Parks West Mall center courtyard and hallway of 111 Government Road.
