Second annual Barb Truax Award presented at KLFS event

By Lindsay Advocate

Kawartha Lakes Food Source is honoured to announce the recipients of the 2019 Barb Truax Volunteer Award.

Janet Armstrong and John Sanders have volunteered for 10 years and have done a variety of a tasks to support KLFS, some of which include: picking up food donations; sorting in the distribution centre; giving presentations about KLFS to community groups; attending schools with a KFLS display and talked with students, parents and teachers; helping with the cycling and hockey fundraising events; and most recently, they have counted the cash donations from food drives and tag day.

With this very long list of tasks, and on behalf of our Board of Directors, the food banks, and the clients, we want to thank you very much for your time, talents and passion for the cause.

The Barb Truax Volunteer Award was created to honour the contributions, dedication and positive energy of our longest serving volunteer.  The recipients must be an active KLFS volunteer for more than three years; be a positive force within the community; and be committed to the cause of fighting hunger in our community.

The Kawartha Lakes Food Source Executive Committee reviews the recommendations and they are very happy to share that Janet and John were selected as they embody the intentions of the award.
