Annual Emergency Services Food Drive


The Chilliwack Fire Department, along with Chilliwack Search and Rescue (SAR) and Emergency Social Services (ESS), would like to thank the citizens of Chilliwack for making the 2019 Emergency Services Food Drive a success.  We would also like to thank Clearway Rentals Inc. for donating the use of a truck to help with the collection of the food donations.


Approximately 21,000 food items were collected by firefighters, SAR, and St. John Ambulance volunteers, along with Mayor Popove and his wife, during a two-hour period on Monday night.  ESS, 1st Fairfield Scouts, and Chilliwack Midget A1 Jr. Bruins hockey team donated their time to help with packing the food items.  These food items will have a significant, short term impact on the local Chilliwack Community Food Bank reserves.


Donations will continue to be accepted during the month of December at Fire Hall #1, located at 45950 Cheam Avenue (corner of Young Road and Cheam Avenue), from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, or drop your donation off at the Salvation Army on Yale Road.
