Public Works Manvers Depot Launches “Fill a Truck” Food Drive

KAWARTHA LAKES-The municipality’s Public Works Manver’s Depot is getting into the giving spirit by hosting a food drive initiative to fill a plow truck with food and other essentials. All items donated will be shared amongst local non-for-profit organizations to be given back to those in need.

“As public works operators, we connect with residents everyday as we’re out in the community servicing roads. We wanted an opportunity to give back to the area and offer our support to those who need it most,” commented Luke Heard, Public Works Heavy Equipment Operator.

The “Fill a Truck” food drive challenge is currently accepting donations at the Manvers Depot at 679 Highway 7, Bethany. To arrange a pick up by staff, please contact Luke Heard at 705-768-1263.

The challenge is open until December 10, 2021.

Staff across the municipality are participating in food drives, such as a challenge between our Coboconk and Bobcaygeon service centres and depots, as well as municipal-wide fundraising for United Way Kawartha Lakes.
