All together food  from three sources  filled the hampers, the food which was donated and the food which was purchased with funds donated by various members of the community and of course food purchased by the Legion.  Yes the Legion purchases food from local merchants such as Foodland and No Frills. Both these stores recognize that the purchases are for the “Hamper Program” and they respond by giving the Legion the “best price” that they can. Throughout the year different events are held or are hosted by the  Captain Charles  Rutherford VC MM  Branch 187 . At many of these events the proceeds of the event go to the Community Services Account from which the Captain Charles S. Rutherford VC, MC, MM Branch 187 purchases food for the Hamper Program in December 2016.
