Romano Accepts Challenge


Over the last couple of months, various local organizations and businesses have participated in food drives in support of the Soup Kitchen and have challenged others to participate.  Well, Challenge Accepted!

Ross Romano, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie and his staff invite constituents to join them Friday December 15th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm to canvas our generous community members for non-perishable food items to donate to the Soup Kitchen.

As such, the constituency office will close December 15th at 12:00 pm to prepare for this worthwhile cause. We encourage those who wish to volunteer along with us to contact the office no later than Thursday December 14th at 4:30 pm at 705-949-6959 or email us at [email protected] for further information.

Ross and his team will be arriving the Soup Kitchen at approximately 4:15pm for the final count of their collection and present the Kitchen with the donations.

“This is a time for giving and I hope to see many volunteers join us,” said Romano.  “Let’s do something great for our City”


  1. To the ones that are going to read this, please pass it on. You’d be surprized at the people that have to use the soup kitchen to survive and there are people that need to, but don’t because they are ashamed.
    I don’t need to go there to eat but I do every once in a while. The difference with me is that I pay to eat there. I leave more money than the food would cost in a restaurant and I don’t take a receipt for what I leave. This way, the soup kitchen can purchase things that they need. As a bonus, the food is great. Suggestion, go there some day and do the same thing, it would be a great gesture for Christmas.

  2. Sorry, but I am getting just a bit jaded about all these drives… Some of us are having enough trouble trying to get along without being made feel guilty for not supporting every darn charity in the world… If the soup kitchen needs that much help then Romano should get them some government help. not keep banging on people that are having their own fair share of problems this time of year..Not trying to be a grinch, but there is a limit ….

    • Well Bill, that’s pretty Grinch-y of you. If you can’t give, you shouldn’t feel guilty! They aren’t doing food drives for people that LITERALLY HAVE NOTHING and have to eat at our soup kitchen, to make other people scraping by feel guilty. Sheesh.
