Food drive a success

On behalf of the Penticton Salvation Army Community Food Bank and the numerous volunteers, we would like to personally thank each and every one of you who donated food items to the area food drive. Through your efforts, 8,030 pounds of food was collected. But far more than the amount was the generosity of Penticton residents in helping those in need that made our efforts worthwhile. The food collected will enable the food bank to better respond to families in need.

The recent B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive was a project of families helping families. Families are the primary food bank recipients and this food drive provided an opportunity for our many volunteer families, groups and organizations to support less fortunate Penticton families.

The B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive is a non-denominational, community-focused project open to all interested individuals, groups and businesses that wish to lend a hand to help the needs of the hungry. Our thanks to the Penticton 7th Scouts, Save On Foods, the Salvation Army and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for their volunteer support. Again, thank you for your compassion in helping your fellow citizens.
