Over the past year, with lots of volunteer help, we upgraded the Drop-In and storage area at the Queen City Exchange. Last year we welcomed over 30,000 visitors to the Drop-In and the installation of a small commercial dishwasher helped us get rid of styro-foam cups. We also updated the storage area.for our supplies.
Thanks Farm Credit Canada!
