On October 6th, The Sharing Place received a letter from Sam Brancatella, President of Conbrada Construction Ltd. with a fall fundraising idea:

Business Community Challenge

"This is a “Business Community Challenge” to all our local businesses especially to the general contracting, building trades, and local building supply industries.

The idea is for everyone to pitch in and raise as much money as possible in the next 30 days and to see how many other businesses will match or exceed our $1,500.00 contribution.

Any dollar amounts would be gratefully appreciated. Every dollar counts."

Shawna Ballik, Operations Manager at The Sharing Place Food Bank, will keep track of all contributions associated with this community challenge. Shawna can be reached at (705) 327-4273 or you can email her at shawna.ballik(at)

Cheques should be made to “The Sharing Place” and please identify them as being attributed to the “Business Community Challenge”
