14th AutoMall Food Bank Drive Continued!
Over the last 14 years the Archway Food Bank has depended on the annual Fraser Valley Auto Mall Food Bank Drive to help provide food throughout the holiday season. This year we were overjoyed when a donation of $27,250 was made on Saturday, December 19th.
This year marks the first time the organizers needed to pivot and modify the fundraising activities and we are thrilled that in doing so they still exceeded previous donations. While we missed the parade through town and the arrival of fire trucks at the Food Bank last Saturday, we are so grateful for the efforts of the Fraser Valley Auto Mall to ensure food is available to all.

The fundraising efforts are comprised of the 10 Fraser Valley Auto Mall Dealers and Automall Autobody, the three Abbotsford Save-On-Foods (Clearbrook, Whatcom and Sumas) and the Abbotsford Fire & Rescue Service. Together they teamed up to make a difference and their efforts and creativity were well rewarded with a donation that exceeded prior years. We are so thankful for their hearts to feed our community!
