Thank you for supporting the Reach Out Food Centre – June 13 & 14

This last weekend two separate events were held by community members in support of the Port Cares Reach Out Food Centre.

542 pounds of food donations  came in from everyone who supported the Films for Hunger Event on Saturday June 13th  and we want to thank the organisers Stephanie and Dave  of Films for Hunger  at HH Knoll Park for creating this special family event. Close to 300  people of all ages enjoyed a wonderful evening in the park , with food, games and fun activities for the kids and watched the film “Paddington Bear”  on a 20 foot screen. Many thanks to Stephanie  Schaeffer, Dave Vogt  and their Sponsors for hosting this wonderful event!

A big thank you also  to Doug from DAWG’S Burgers and Fries for persevering despite the rain and donating $300.00 to Port Cares from their grand opening.stephfilms for hunger 1
