UNITED WAY CENTRAL NEW BRUNSWICK COMPASSION FUND

Thanks to the financial support of United Way Central New Brunswick's Compassion Fund, FAPO is able to continue with its weekly food distribution on Wednesdays from 10 am to 1 pm during the COVID 19 State of Emergency.

The support of the United Way's Compassion Fund could not have come at a better time for FAPO as we do not receive any municipal, provincial or federal government support. We rely solely on the sale of recycled donated goods through the Yard Sale Store to keep the lights on, pay for our vehicle insurance, etc..

When the government of New Brunswick declared a state of emergency on March 19, FAPO was left with no source of income and we were very concerned how we were going to survive, so the support of the United Way at this important time makes it possible for us to keep providing services to our constituency in Fredericton at a time when they need us most.

We are open on Wednesdays from 10 am to 1 pm …

Donation Pickups Changes Due to Inclement Weather

Image
Because of the weather we are currently behind on donations pickups. We need those who have donations they need picked up to call the store at 458-9102 to schedule a pickup. We also ask that when donating you contact us at least 7 days before you need the donations picked up. Please understand though that because of possible snow storms we may not be able to pickup on the day we have you scheduled, if this happens we will contact you as soon as we are able to reschedule a pick up time. During this time of year when storms and cold weather abound we may close early or remain closed on days with inclement weather. We thank everyone who donates to us and to those who shop in our store.
