Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Help for our less fortunate villagers

Every Monday we cook a home cooked meal and meet at Nanaimo Square

I represent Monday Night Dinners at Nanaimo Square, a not-for-profit club that feeds our less fortunate villagers.

Every Monday we cook a home cooked meal and meet at Nanaimo Square to hand out food, toiletries, feminine hygiene products, condoms, clothing, blankets and whatever they need that we can get our hands on. We are currently looking for donations for our Easter dinner on April 2. We are looking for: chocolates and treats, boxed stuffing and/or grain filled day-olds for the freezer, butter, sour cream, potatoes, frozen broccoli and cauliflower, gravy packets, canned cranberries, gloves, socks, handwarmers, toothbrushes and plastic forks.

For more information or donations drop off location email

Thank you in advance. Be the village

Kristine Lee Shepherd
