Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest helps the Food Bank of Waterloo Region spread the Spirit of Thanksgiving with the Onkel Hans Food

 

(Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada – October 10, 2011) Today the Food Bank of Waterloo Region and Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest came together to help those in need while enjoying the tradition of the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Mark Kreller, Executive Director of K-W Oktoberfest Inc., says, “It’s a great pleasure to announce that we have raised 19,360 lbs of non-perishable food items along the parade route this year. We also collected $15,755 in cash, which will be used to purchase additional food. This is an additional $2,500 over what was collected in 2010. We are so proud of Kitchener-Waterloo for opening up both your hearts and your wallets for the Food Bank.”

Each year local citizens and visitors share with those less fortunate by donating food and cash as part of the Thanksgiving tradition in Kitchener-Waterloo. As over 150 thousand people lined the streets to watch the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Thanksgiving Day Parade, one of the highlights of Canada’s Greatest Bavarian Festival, volunteers from corporate sponsors Sobeys; Martin’s Family Fruit Farms; NAPA Auto Parts; CHYM 96.7/570 News/KIX 106.7 FM; 105.3 KOOL FM/KFUN 99.5 and CTV shared their time to collect the donations along the parade route.

Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest runs until October 15th and the Onkel Hans Food Drive runs to October 12th. Those who could not make it down to the Parade can still distribute to the Onkel Hans Food Drive by purchasing a case Molson Canadian; $1 from every case will be donated to the Food Bank of Waterloo Region and the Cambridge Self-help Food Bank to a maximum of $7,500.

To support the Food Bank of Waterloo Region’s Thanksgiving Food Drive call 519-743-5576.
