For the second year in a row, Penticton’s Deckside Pool & Spa has made a huge splash in the community by donating to the Starfish Pack program, which provides food to local school-aged children and their families.
Today Dan Leclercq with Deckside Pool & Spa presented a cheque for $4,200 to the Rotary Club of Penticton’s program, doubling the donation he made last year. The program packs backpacks with food from Save-On Foods for kids and their families to eat on the weekends. The backpacks are distributed throughout the local schools on Fridays, with the empty backpacks being returned on Monday to start the process over.
In total, Leclercq has now funded the filling of eight backpacks, or the stomachs and hearts of eight families.
