Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The NextGen committee is pleased to be hosting our 1st annual Thanksgiving food drive.  We have been challenged by Local 353 in Ontario to see who will have the highest donation weight (based on working member ratio).  We are asking that you please make a non-perishable food item donation.  All you need to do is weigh your donation and drop it off at your local food bank or drop off box (which is often found at your local grocery store) and simply email the weight to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

And that’s it!!  The local who donates the most weight WINS!

What’s the PRIZE? BRAGGING RIGHTS and a TROPHY to put up at our Local’s hall! Together we can win this challenge and help put an end to hunger this Thanksgiving.

I thank you in advance for supporting the NextGen committee,

Jim Sponagle
