Community 10th Annual Spirit of Alex and Riley Memorial Food Drive May 26, 2023May 23, 2023 The Shoreline 0 Comments Bernie and Louise Mercer had their hands full, literally, at this year’s 10th Annual Spirit of Alex and Riley Memorial Food Drive. The couple collected $5,477 in cash, cheques, and gift cards, plus mountains of food donations, all for local food banks. Following the food drive, which was centred at the Salvation Army Church in Long Pond and featured many volunteers and even members of the CBS Fire Department who collected donations from local schools, Louise said the event went really well, and the couple look forward to hosting it again next year. “It’s a really good feeling to know that after 10 years, the food drive is still successful and people are still coming out to support the memory of Alex and Riley, which means everything to us,” said Louise.
