More than $5900 donated to the Rockland Help Centre
Rockland Wal-Mart manager Gord Maclean is seen handing a cheque to Rockland Help Centre Vice-President Nicole Gaul, with longtime volunteer Daphne Love by her side, on October 15. The three are surrounded by employees of the store. The latter has donated more than 30,000 pounds of non-perishable and non-food items since the beginning of the year. “Anything that can’t be sold, we donate to the local Help Centre,” expressed Maclean. “That includes cereal boxes or cans that are dented.” The Rockland Help Centre is home to the local foodbank as well as a thrift store. The food bank helps some 40 families per week.
