very month, Ashley HomeStore North on Drury Street in North Bay gives back to the community.
This December, they are throwing their support behind the North Bay Food Bank.
Both the staff and the store’s customers can contribute to this mission, which benefits several local communities. Each Ashley HomeStore location in Northern Ontario, of which there are three—Sudbury, North Bay and Espanola—hold local food drives and all three of these communities benefit.
How does it work?
During the month of December, bring a non-perishable food item or make a $10 donation and you will save the taxes on already discounted sale prices throughout the store. Ashley is also donating a portion of VIP subscriptions as well as a percentage of all sales for the entire month.
People are happy to support the food bank, which they believe is important. Thankfully, many community partners and community businesses in Northern Ontario understand the need to help and are in a position to do so. This regional approach also helps to ensure that more communities receive support.
The North Bay Food Bank is a fixed address hamper program that can serve area residents once every 30 days, when recipients will receive 1-7 days’ worth of food.
The items received are dependent on donations, so the selection may vary each visit. Their mission is to work within the community to gather and distribute nutritious food to those in need, and to increase public awareness about the conditions that lead to food insecurity in the first place.
Ashley HomeStore North is proud to raise funds for such a worthy organization and to provide an easy way for the community to get involved and show their support too. Every dollar raised helps to fight hunger and feed hope.
