VIDEO: Paramedics Extend a Helping Hand for the Hungry

3

The Sault’s paramedic team is doing their part for the holidays.

With two food drives Saturday at No Frills and Food Basics, the EMS team continued their tradition of collecting cash and food donations.

After collecting food and cash donations, Paramedics deliver these items to the Soup Kitchen, located on James Street. The Soup Kitchen sees a significant rise in demand during the winter months, which makes it a perfect time to help them prepare for the high demand ahead.
Sault Ste. Marie Paramedics held their first ‘Helping the Hungry’ food drive in 2012 and the tradition has carried on since then. To date, 14,996 lbs. of food has been collected along with $27,577.19 raised and donated.

  1. Thank you Paramedics for helping..on another note, it’s sad that the Sault is so behind the times for cost of living wages, vs housing, gas, hydro and food which have all gone up much higher than what the Pensioners or the Disabled . So very sad, but it’s how the Sault works!
