**November 23 event update**
We are continuing to monitor AHS directions for outdoor gatherings and social events, and will continue to follow all directions.**Meetup details**
At this point, it's very unlikely that there will be any kind of meetup mingling / socializing permitted. We would still be permitted to meet up, but ALL participants MUST remain in their vehicles. Please remember that anyone choosing not to abide by this direction risks impacting the reputation of Jeepers for Vets, the Jeeping community and the Veterans Association Food Bank.
The meetup location will be at the Real Canadian Superstore in Deerfoot Meadows (aka Heritage Meadows).
Jeeps and other vehicles will meet in the small parking lot to the left of the Superstore if you were facing it.
Exact time is still TBD but it will be in the morning.**Drop off details**
The drop off of donations at the Veterans Association Food Bank will also be slightly different this year. The VAFB will place a series of cardboard bins with spacing between them behind the building (same drop off location as previous years). The convoy will arrive at the VAFB, and proceed around the building from the North side to the back. The convoy will remain in a single-file lineup of vehicles. As each vehicle takes its turn at the bins, the owner/passenger of that vehicle will unload their donations in one of the bins and then re-enter their vehicle. Once you have unloaded, continue along the back of the building and exit (turn right) at the south end.**Post-event meetup**
There will be no post-event meetup at the Chapelhow Legion this year.**Options**
If you prefer to make a monetary donation to the VAFB instead of physical donations, that can be done online.https://veteransassociationfoodbank.ca/give-money
If you are unable to attend the event, or do not feel comfortable attending, you can contact the VAFB directly to drop off any donations at an alternate time. https://veteransassociationfoodbank.ca
While this year's event will be quite a bit different than previous years, the importance of the event and the level of appreciation have not changed. Thank you!!!
