    In Support of EFB 1

    As we head into the holiday season, we are humbly reminded that over 20,000 Edmontonians depend on the support of Edmonton’s Food Bank every month regardless of everything else that’s been going on in our world.

    Pack the Pantry

    At Parkwood, improving the way people live is our mission, and we want to give those who are struggling a chance to experience the joy of the holidays with full hearts and a packed pantry. From November 14th until December 14th, we will be running our Pack the Pantry food drive and will be accepting non-perishable food items at our West Secord Showhome! Once the food drive ends, we will tally the donations and Parkwood will match the total!

    Where to Drop Off Donations

    Our Presley showhome at 9248 224 Street NW will be open and accepting donations by appointment only every Saturday and Sunday from noon until 5pm until December 14th. 

    If you can’t make it on a weekend, we will also have Pack the Pantry bins set up at our showhomes in Glenridding Ravine, Cavanagh and Laurel Crossing that will be open for donations by appointment only Monday – Thursday from 3-8pm as well as Saturday – Sunday from noon til 5pm!
