It was Christmas in July at 99.3 Moose FM West Nipissing this morning as West Nipissing Food Bank president Claudette LeRoy joined morning host Steph for a few hours to ask for monetary donations for the food bank.

Money for rent and fresh food that is purchased every month, along with new people requiring its services from month to month has left the food bank with an urgent need for monetary donations.

Close to $1200.00 was raised in the 2 hrs LeRoy was in studio with another significant donation expected from Union Gas which will bring that total to over $2000.00

Those wishing to make a donation can call Claudette LeRoy at 705-594-2279 and a tax receipt will be issued immediately with your donation.

***UPDATE*** – Caisse Populaire Sturgeon Falls/Verner have added a $1000.00 donation to today’s total with an additional significant donation expected tomorrow morning from a local investment group.
