The annual Penticton Thanksgiving Meals Drive in help of the Salvation Military Meals Financial institution is again, and volunteers hope for the group’s assist ensuring nobody goes hungry.

Yearly, volunteers distribute specifically printed paper donation baggage to as many houses in Penticton as doable forward of the vacation.

This 12 months, they are going to be out dropping off baggage Sept. 19-23. Donors merely fill the baggage with non-perishable meals and go away them on their doorstep for volunteers to select up on Saturday, Sept. 24 for supply to the meals financial institution.

In 2021, six tons of meals have been collected via the drive.

The group is at all times on the lookout for extra assist from anybody who desires to volunteer as a “pal of the meals drive,” dropping off and choosing up donation baggage.

Those that reside in strata communities or residence buildings also can assist by receiving permission from their board chair or residence supervisor to go away baggage on the doorways of their neighbours, or distribute baggage to workers and coworkers and set up a typical donation level.

Anybody with questions or who needs to volunteer can name: Roger Ellingson (778 878-7360) or Dan Kane (250 328 8151).
