UFCW Local 175 members at Zehrs Store #565 Community Fundraiser

On April 23rd, a fire broke out at an apartment complex in Barrie. Twenty-five homes were engulfed by flames, displacing all residences and affecting over 70 people.

In true community spirit the colleagues and customers of Zehrs #565 pitched in to help by holding and participating in a Barbeque fundraiser on May 4th. The event raised $1152.00 which will be donated to the affected families.

We would like to take this opportunity to send a special thank you to Emma(Bookkeeper), James(Meat Manager) and Jeff(PC Mobile). Your compassion and generosity is appreciated.
