This past weekend the Noah Strong Day Ball Hockey Tournament was held at the Bill Barber rink in Callander. The tournament raises funds for the NoahStrong Foundation, a charitable organization that raises money for various causes.
During the event, organizers donated a portion of the proceeds to help the Callander and District Foodbank at 78 Lansdowne Street, and the $1,000 donation was “very much appreciated” by those at the foodbank.
So explained Maureen Carriere, one of the founders of the foodbank. She noted that the summer months are usually a little lean for food banks. The high point for donations is around the holidays – “people were so generous over Christmas” – but the summer is when donations tend to dry up.
