It’s the time of year when many Canadians like to give back.

Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing MP Carol Hughes is praising the work local food banks do for their communities. Hughes talked about the Rotary Club of Kapuskasing who have taken over responsibility of the food bank in town from the Kinsmen Club who recently closed their doors. She also mentioned Pastor Dan Lee of Chapleau who opened up the communities food bank.

Hughes says these are just a few examples of how people from across our region are volunteering to make their communities more compassionate and caring over the holiday season.
