MAY 16th Miracle is One Day-Four Hours-at 12 Noon!

MAY 16th Miracle is One Day-Four Hours-at 12 Noon!

On May 16th, we're going to make a miracle happen in Chatham-Kent.

We've all been struggling in so many ways the past several weeks as a result of COVID-19. Among the hardest hit are food banks and organizations and those who rely on them for support.

Join us on Saturday, May 16th at 12:00 p.m. as we hold a CK-wide food drive.

It's easy to participate! Place a non-perishable food item on your doorstep before noon on May 16th and an amazing group of volunteers will be going across CK to pick them up.

Want to join the fight and help us spread the word?

Visit to download digital assets that you can share on social media.

Tell your family, friends, and coworkers about the May 16th Miracle and how they can get involved. Invite your kids to create signs and banners to display in your windows, or create chalk art on your sidewalks or driveways.

If you have any questions, more details and Frequently Asked Questions are available on the website and will be updated frequently before May 16th.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? We realize that there is a greater need for food during the COVID-19 crisis. It is our hope that we can stock the shelves at all of Chatham-Kent’s food banks and other organizations that provide food to those who need it most. We can’t do this without you, and we’re all in this together.
WHAT SHOULD I DONATE? Non-perishables is what we are looking for, we have just completed a survey with the food banks across Chatham-Kent and we will be posting results of that soon. This will help us be more specific. Check back!
IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO LEAVE A FOOD ITEM ON MY DOORSTEP? We recommend washing your hands before placing your donation on your doorstep to keep you and our volunteers safe during the collection process. All our volunteers will be following physical distancing and hand washing protocols as outlined and recommended by our Public Health Unit, and we encourage you to do the same. Please visit the Public Health Unit’s website if you would like more information on how to mitigate your risk of contracting COVID-19.
WILL DONATIONS RAISED IN MY TOWN STAY IN MY TOWN? There is a shortage of food across Chatham-Kent. Our immediate goal is to keep food in the towns it is gathered in, however, if there are more dire needs elsewhere, we will move food around. Our goal is to help everyone who needs it.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE? So many ways! You can place a non-perishable on your doorstep at 12:00 pm on May, 16th. You can also follow United Way CK on Facebook and Instagram to share and like our posts. You can also create your own social media posts! You can join the May 16th, miracle Facebook event page as well and post there. You can put up posters at your business, you can make your own signs and put them in your window. Tell your friends and family as well (be sure to practice social distancing).
I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT AND I DON’T HAVE A DOORSTEP OR PORCH. HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE ? We are going to do pick-ups in lobby areas of apartment buildings and are working with building managers. Strict social distancing guidelines are still in place. So if you place your donation in your lobby, keep a safe distance and wash your hands!
