Local food banks are hoping Lethbridge shoppers will come out on Saturday in support of their Christmas fundraising efforts.
On Saturday, Sobeys Uplands will host “Give the Gift of Food,” an event which includes food, festivities and fun winter activities.
Donations will be accepted at the tills. In return for donations, five Air Miles Reward Miles will be given for every $2 donated. A maximum of 20 Air Miles can be awarded per transaction. In addition, anyone making a donation to Interfaith Food Bank will have their name entered to win a free turkey dinner complete with fixings.
Tax receipts for contributions will be available at the Customer Service Desk for donations of $15 and more.
Festivities will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and include: opportunities to visit Santa; be treated to free coffee, hot chocolate, cake and cookies from the bakery; hear from food experts sampling holiday-inspired recipes; and an opportunity to save on in-store specials.
There will also be a charity barbecue during the event with funds raised going to the Interfaith Food Bank.
