Summerlanders gave generously to this year’s Operation Santa Claus gift drive.

The gift drive is organized through the Summerland Review and has been a tradition at the newspaper since 1967.

Staff from McBain Insurance packed the gifts last week and took them to the Summerland Food Bank, where they will be distributed through the annual holiday hampers.

The gifts filled a total of 25 bags and 12 boxes.

Keith Quesnelle, manager of McBain Insurance, said this year’s donations were considerably more than last year’s donations.

In addition to their role with Operation Santa Claus, staff at McBain Insurance contributed $500 through a weekly workplace program. Each week, staff members contribute $1 for the privilege of wearing jeans to work on Fridays.
