Through their Bingo earnings, the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club donated several thousand dollars to community food banks, helping families in need during Christmas and in the following weeks.

A total of $3,000 was donated to four local food banks on Dec. 23.

This money will be used primarily to purchase foods and hygienic items for the many hundreds of people who use the food banks in Renfrew County.
