A drive to raise money for the Trinity Infant Food Shelf that serves North Bay and the region has exceeded its target by more than 50 percent.
The original goal called for 100 Women to raise 100 Dollars over 100 Hours for a total of $10,000.
However 152 women took part in last week’s campaign and they raised $15,272.55.
The money will be used to supply the shelves with baby care supplies that are essential to producing healthy babies.
Families in the North Bay region, including Sturgeon Falls, can access the supplies the infant shelf provides.
Among the items that are distributed are breastfeeding supplies, baby food and baby blankets.
Additionally, families have access to sleep sacks and infant formula.
One of the campaign organizers, Wendy Abdallah, says the $15,000 plus will have a big impact for babies and families.
Families with an infant under 12 months old can access the infant shelf.
Since first being formed in 2014, the Trinity Infant Food Shelf has helped more than 300 families.
The infant shelf is located at Trinity United Church at 111 McIntyre Street East and is open every Wednesday from 11:00am to 1:00pm.
