Emergency Services Food Drive Quickly Approaching

The annual Emergency Services Food Drive in Revelstoke is just over a month away.

September 18th will mark the 8th year of the event.

Patti Larson with Community Connections notes that the now one-night event is incredibly important for the Food Bank, saying "25% of the food for the entire year is raised during this very important Food Drive, so please keep that in mind."

Anyone wanting to donate before then can help out with fresh vegetables from their garden.

Larson says that 30% of those benefiting from the Food Bank each year are children.

Anyone wanting to volunteer for the Food Drive on the 18th is asked to contact Community Connections.
