The Ponoka Food Bank was the site of the latest Done in a Day project for the Ponoka Kinette Club.

On Oct. 1 the Kinettes spent the evening washing shelves and cleaning storage areas of the food bank in preparation for the donations that usually come in around the Thanksgiving season.

The Kinettes have provided monetary donations to the Ponoka Food Bank and many other community organizations over the years. This year, in addition to financial support, the Kinettes have committed to doing several Done in a Day community service projects.

If you are interested in joining the Kinettes, or if you have a suggestion for a Done in a Day project, contact the club at ponokakinetteclub@hotmail.com or phone Leah Cline at 403-783-4389.
