It’s “The Good Stuff!”
Shelburne’s local foodbank recently received a donation of much needed shelving valued at approximately $2500 from two local business owners working together for the betterment of their community. Shelburne Home Hardware Building Centre, owner Bill Gillam and Shelburne’s John’s No Frills owner, John van Teunenbroek were very pleased the see the greatly appreciated difference their donation has made to the foodbank. In addition to the space efficiency afforded by the shelving, convenience and safety is now a wonderful aspect to the food bank’s functionality for both volunteers and those who visit the food bank.
“The better the community does, the better everyone does. It’s an investment into the community,” commented van Teunenbroek. Both Business owners are well known in the community for their philanthropic work. Gillam annually raises money for local breakfast clubs. ” Everybody gains when we help our community and the Food Bank really needed shelving,” commented Gillam. Both businessmen expressed a real hope that more industry will come to Shelburne and providing much needed jobs will lighten the demand for the food bank’s role in the community. With community engagement and generosity shared by businesses partnering together, fantastic change is afoot. Congratulations to the Shepherd’s Cupboard on their new shelving and as a Shelburnite, a huge thanks goes out to these two very hard working individuals, local business owners who continually think outside the box, making our community such a fantastic place to live. It’s “THE GOOD STUFF!”
