The weather man cooperated and held off the rain as the Kitchener Knights of Columbus 2019 Great Big Spring Clean-up was organized on Saturday May 4th at the St. Anthony Daniel parking lot at Ottawa and Franklin. The lineup began at 8 AM and was steady till noon. Those who visited the site left a great deal of unwanted electronic waste and scrap metal to be recycled.
The Shred All truck was active accepting total Food Bank cash donations of $1,671, well over expectations, while food donations topped over 600 pounds. It was noted that there were many repeat customers who marked this event on their calendar. Another observation determined the Food Bank donations continued to grow. The success of this year’s Big Spring Cleanup can be attributed to those dedicated Brother Knights who helped. This enables Council 1504 to continue its charitable works.
