Food bank fights hunger

The Spirit of giving is gaining ground.

The Central Okanagan Community Food Bank is expected to distribute 2,000 Christmas hampers in the Central Okanagan, up from 1,600 last year and there is a reason for the big increase.

"There are more families turning to us for help, so we expect to see more families in need, and we are working more collaboratively with our partner agencies, so organizations that would have traditionally given out Christmas hampers are now referring their clients directly to us." 

To add to the fun West Kelowna Firefighters will be knocking on doors on December 6 and 7 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for their annual holiday food drive.

If you are in short supply of canned goods feel free to donate new and unwrapped toys to KelownaSantas.com

To make an immediate impact you can donate online at www.cofoodbank.com or visit the branch at 1265 Ellis street Monday to Friday 8 a.m to 4 p.m and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until December 30. 

Don't wait to donate, and help bring a smile to those in need.
