Ponoka’s busiest shopping day of the year is fast approaching.
In an effort to take advantage of the busy Almost Midnight Madness this Friday, Ponoka News is once again hosting a special donation event for the Ponoka Food Bank with a goal of reaching 1,000 pounds of food.
Shoppers looking to take advantage of the great shopping deals can bring food or cash to donate to the food bank and grab a special gift certificate from our Christmas Tree.
Crowds usually line up outside the Ponoka News office, which opens at 6 p.m. to take donations.
Thanks to the sponsorship of local businesses, the event helps raise awareness, funds and groceries for the food bank, and donors are able to grab a good deal. Almost Midnight Madness is hosted by the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce and brings large numbers into town.
