donated goods from residents in Forfar St, Mosgiel, during last
night's can drive for the Mosgiel Community Foodbank.
Organiser Michelle Kerr said the response from the community
was once again great, with enough food collected for the more
than 100 food parcels to be distributed to families in the
area this Christmas.
Recipients can expect to receive a mix of canned food and
staples such as rice and pasta, as well as chocolates,
biscuits and gifts for children.
Ambulances, fire trucks, police cars and utes pulling
trailers drove the streets of the area, while volunteers from
local scout and guide groups were on foot to collect the
goods from residents.
