580 CFRA - News Talk Radio: "Food Bank Says Donor Fatigue Has Not Hit Them

It's been another successful Christmas campaign for Ottawa's Food Bank, but the relief agency is still hard at work even after Christmas Day.

The executive director of The Food Bank, Peter Tilley, says although there has been talk of 'donor fatigue' this holiday season, he hasn't seen any evidence of it. 'Not in a huge amount,' he says.

With last year's Boxing Day tsunami, the earthquake in Pakistan, the hurricane in New Orleans, people have been donating in record amounts in 2005, but Tilley says, 'This is a great community! They've looked after people internationally, but they also always remember to look after their own at home and look after their neighbours.'"
