“He didn’t want any­one to know who he was. His lawyer called and ar­ranged ev­ery­thing.”

Then of­fi­cials from Nova Sco­tia Power pur­chased a re­frig­er­a­tor and freezer.

“We thank both the staff of NSP and the anony­mous in­di­vid­ual for their un­be­liev­able gen­eros­ity.” How­ever she said the calls kept com­ing. An­other man went into Schwartz Fur­ni­ture to buy the two ap­pli­ances for the food bank but was told pur­chases had al­ready been made.

Vol­un­teer Char­lotte Marr said th­ese ap­pli­ances will make a big dif­fer­ence in as­sist­ing less for­tu­nate fam­i­lies in the area.

She said the re­frig­er­a­tor on the main floor wasn’t work­ing prop­erly. They would cook for sev­eral days, such things as five gal­lon pots of stew, but didn’t have the space to freeze the food.

As well she said gro­cery stores are so gen­er­ous of­ten giv­ing them ev­ery­thing from bread to bran muffins, cakes and pies, but they never had any­where to keep the prod­uct.

“In the past there was no way of keep­ing cer­tain things. Now we can freeze them.”

“This will make a huge dif­fer­ence in help­ing peo­ple in the area.”

The Glace Bay Food Bank has 700 clients on file.
