Community Pantry

Hello Neighbours!

 

As some of you may have noticed the community pantry is now located at the Woodcreek Community association (1991 Woodview Dr SW). We are excited to have this move completed and see what the future hold for the pantry.

 

What was started as a late night whim at the beginning of the pandemic as grown into a community owned and operated venture. The support the community has shown to the pantry is one of the best examples of the positives of a pandemic. The concept of a community pantry is simple, and it operates much like one of the many little free libraries in the community. Take what you need, and give what you can.

 

Thanks to Derek Mcgillis and the financial support of the community at large we have a four-cupboard pantry to hold food and household items.

 

Some of the biggest needs that we have noticed are hygiene products, and sources of protein. During the cold weather months, we are asking that people refrain from donating canned or liquid items that might expand when frozen and damage the pantry.

 

Running the pantry has truly let me see the generosity and spirit of the community. I have been amazed by the number of people donating directly to the pantry and contacting me to ask about donating different items.

 

Here is a handy list of items we always need

 

Soap

 

Feminine hygiene products

 

Shampoo/ conditioner

 

Laundry and dish soap

 

Tissues and toilet paper

 

Dried beans and lentils

 

Pasta

 

Dried soups

 

Powdered milk

 

Bread

 

Dried veggies

 

Diapers/ wipes

 

Extras: (sugar, flour, coffee, tea, treats)

 

Thank you for your support,

WCA is implementing a pilot project to provide cross country trails at three locations in the community. We have done the groundwork and have route approval from the City of Calgary. Now that there is enough snow for the cross-country season to begin, the trails need to be groomed first.  We are looking for volunteers who can manually set the track and others can donate their time and equipment (a quad or snowmobile) to pull a track-setter and maintain the tracks. Cross country skiing in Woodcreek would be fun and convenient.  It allows our residents to participate in another activity and embrace winter. All interested volunteers, please contact the office at wca@woodcreekcommunity.ca or at 403-238-1611.
