Thanks for supporting food bank

Donations to Summerland food bank are appreciated.

Dear Editor

The volunteers and clients of Summerland Food Bank wish to express their gratitude for the caring shown by residents of the South Okanagan in their generous support of the food bank.

The  Fire Department, Kathy and Wendy did their usual stellar job fulfilling children’s gift wishes’ beautiful pies courtesy of Summerland Asset Development Initiative and Murray’s Pizzas helped to make Christmas Food Distribution Day special.

The host families say thank you for making Christmas more enjoyable. Thank you to the lady who donated her Shop Summerland Bear Promotion winnings, the pyjama party group, the female staff at a local bank, employees wearing jeans on Fridays, the children who gave up gifts, the exchange of batteries for donations, breakfasts by local restaurants, support of Good News Bears, Summerland Review Santa Project, service clubs, employees forgoing staff parties, the school children who collected non perishables with such enthusiasm and the many businesses and individuals who gave and gave some more. Please forgive any omissions, they were not intentional, each donation is equally appreciated.

A big thank you to the volunteers who make the whole operation possible, without your dedication and support the food bank would not be.

My personal thank you to the many wonderful people in the community I have had the privilege of working with, you make volunteering a joy.

Leventine Adams

President
