Employees raise $4000 for food banks

Fundraising efforts on the part of Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen employees over the last year have resulted in the donation of more than $4,000 in cash and foodstuffs to seven local food bank associations.

“This is a voluntary effort on the part of our employees,” explained Bill Newell, the Regional District’s Chief Administrative Officer.

“The funds raised and the food donated was all accomplished on their own time with their own resources.

“It is further confirmation of our staff’s commitment to the community in which they live and work.”

At a brief ceremony yesterday at the regional office in Penticton, each of the seven food bank associations — representing Penticton, Summerland, Cawston, Oliver, Osoyoos, Princeton and Okanagan Falls —received cheques in the amount of $550.  Additional foodstuffs collected in January were also turned over to the food bank associations.
