A group of community leaders, business owners and residents are volunteering their time to hold an Essex County-wide food drive on June 27th in collaboration with the Goodfellows and Windsor Essex County Food Bank Association. The June 27th Miracle project is asking every Windsor-Essex resident to place a non-perishable food item on their doorstep at 12:00 pm, and an army of volunteers will be going around to pick them up. Drop-off locations will be available for those living in rural areas. All donations will be given to food banks and organizations across the community. The COVID-19 crisis has created a shortage of volunteers and donations, leaving a portion of the population in a vulnerable position. When it comes to food banks, many of the shelves are bare.
“There are over 30,000 visits to food banks in Windsor Essex right now,” said Tracey Bailey, Deputy Mayor Town of Lakeshore, Chief Executive Officer, Community Support Centre of Essex County, Organizing Committee, June 27th Miracle. “In the city and county, the need has almost doubled. People are struggling. We are learning through COVID. We are learning that people are not just in need now, they were already in need.”
On June 27th, the goal is for 100 per cent of all residents who can make a food donation to participate. If it can be pulled off, it will truly be a miracle for those in need and for the community as a whole. Behind the scenes, a large group of volunteers, influencers, and leaders are ready to spread the word to the more than 400,000 people who call Essex County home. “After the success of Chatham-Kent’s May 16th Miracle food drive we were inspired to act on this once in a lifetime opportunity for our community of Windsor Essex,” said Adam Lally, Organizing Committee, June 27th Miracle. “This event is about more than just food, it’s about focusing on something positive and inspiring hope to everyone it touches.”
