The Chiefs’ month-long “Drive Home a Tonne” effort, held in partnership with Mainland Ford and other sponsors, was organized in time for Thanksgiving.

In the end, three trucks loaded with donations travelled from Whalley Athletic Park to the food bank site in Newton.

“Our food drive was a huge success!” the baseball club raved in a Facebook post.
