Smiths Falls, Westport, Elgin, Portland, Merrickville, Delta & Athens
Smiths Falls – The Hinton Auto Group Build a Mountain of Food Campaign continues this Saturday in its 11th year of collecting food and cash donations in support of local food banks throughout the region.
Title Sponsor, Hinton Auto Group, along with participating media partners, Metroland Media, Jack 92.3, Lake 88 Radio, Your TV, and the Hinton Auto Group Community Facebook page have once again joined forces to support area food banks to help fill the shelves this holiday season.
Area food banks continue to play a vital role, providing necessary assistance to the many faces of hunger in our communities, including seniors, single parents, the working poor, and unfortunately, many children.
Again this year, the Hinton Auto Group Build a Mountain of Food Campaign will take place in 11 local towns and villages in support of local food banks.
The communities include Almonte, Carleton Place, Perth, Lanark, Smiths Falls, Westport, Elgin, Portland, Merrickville, Athens, and Delta.
A number of food blitz days are scheduled at area grocery store locations to help Build a Mountain of Food. The Hinton Auto Group will be on hand with a variety of vehicles, and along with our participating media partners, will be asking people to help fill the vehicles with food to help support our local food banks. We pride ourselves on the fact that 100% of all food and money collected in your community stays in your community. You give where you live.
You can follow along with Metroland Media as they feature weekly stories showing the progress of Build a Mountain of Food, along with letting you know about our upcoming weekly stops. This year, we welcome a new media partner in Rogers Broadcasting with Jack 92.3 Smiths Falls who along with Lake 88 will provide ongoing promotional support and weekly on-air interviews and live on-location reports with our food bank representatives. Your TV will also provide ongoing coverage throughout our campaign.
The Hinton Auto Group will also be providing extensive video coverage of the campaign, including Facebook live streaming coverage from all of the Build a Mountain of Food locations, as well as special video interviews from our many campaign stops.
