NEW TRUCK CAMPAIGN

Help! We need a new truck!

We urgently need your help to continue our operations of our food bank that provides support to low income families and vulnerable indivuals.

Parker Street’s 3-tonne delivery truck officially retired due to failed brakes and old age. Without a vehicle suited for picking up and delivering mass amounts of fresh and packaged food items, Parker Street will not be able to operate sufficiently. 

$50,000 Is needed to maintain proper operations

Parker Street started the New Truck Fund campaign in early 2021 with hopes to raise a total of $176,000 to purchase a new refrigerated delivery truck by May 2022. At the end of last year, we managed to raise $100,000 of that total goal. We are now only $50,000 away from our milestone and a new vehicle that can help us serve our community more efficiently.

Our delivery vehicles are on the road 7 days a week, either picking up donated and/or purchased food items or delivering food and other needed essential household items to those who need help the most. A new refrigerated truck is going to be visible and tangible proof of our community’s collective commitment to achieving food security in the Halifax Regional Municipality and bringing an end to hunger in this part of our province.

Please help us get the needed funds as soon as possible. We thank you very much for your kindness and generosity.

For any questions, please contact Amgad Zaky, the Director of Donor Relations, at (902) 377-4767 or you can send an email to amgad.zaky@parkerstreet.org.

Here at Parker Street, we depend on our trucks to meet the needs of those vulnerable members of our community.

Parker Street Food & Furniture Bank is in dire need of a new refrigerated truck to support the operations of our food and furniture pick up and delivery programs, which have been aiding low-income families and vulnerable individuals in the Halifax region since 1983.

At the end of February 2022, Parker Street’s 3-tonne delivery truck officially retired due to failed brakes and old age. Without a vehicle suited for picking up and delivering mass amounts of fresh and packaged food items, Parker Street will not be able to operate sufficiently. We are asking its donors and the community at large to help raise another $70,000 in order to purchase a new truck for food pick-up and deliveries.
