It’s also important to o$er support to the family, friends and community members who are left behind after a suicide. While it may be di#cult to start the conversation, giving an individual who has lost a loved one to suicide the opportunity to talk about their loss, on their own terms, can help them to move forward through their grieving process.

A little shop with a big heart The L’Orignal Food Bank offers more than support to local families. Clients can also expect to !nd a shoulder to lean on, and a caring ear. The food bank receives donations from many sources, the biggest one being from the secondhand shop housed in the same building. “A purchase from the Friperie is a donation to the food bank,” said Helene Anstey, director of the food bank. “People from everywhere can shop here. They don’t have to be a client of the food bank.” The shop stocks just about everything from clothing to coffee pots. “Besides clothes, we have dishes, small appliances, shoes, purses, knick knacks, books, CDs, movies, and even furniture sometimes,” said Anstey. The shop has regular ‘!ll a bag’ sales on the !rst Saturday, and the Wednesday following of each month, as well as the !fth Saturday of each month. Visitors can !ll a bag of clothing for a nominal fee, and funds go toward purchasing food for the food bank. “All the clothes are cleaned and pressed before we put them out,” explained Anstey. “Some of them are new and even still have the tag on.” The shop is open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and on Saturdays when there is a sale, from 9 a.m. to noon. “People should come early if they want to get a good choice,” joked Anstey. “The early bird gets the worm.” Information can be found on the food bank Facebook page under Banque Alimentaire de L’Orignal Food Bank or by calling 613-675-1999.
