ESS Food Drive Donations Now Being Tallied


Another ESS Food Drive is in the books for Revelstoke.

Volunteers spent their Tuesday night collecting cash and food donations.

Organizer Patti Larson is pleased with the support, saying "We had our volunteers, we had Emergency Services, we had Starbucks providing refreshments, and throughout this whole week Tim Horton's is selling $1 Smile Cookies in support of the food bank."

The weather wasn't great, but no complaints from Larson "It was lots of fun - it was really chaotic, and then it rained, and rained some more.. Everybody kept smiling and was having fun."

Over 200 boxes of food were donated, but exact totals are still being counted.
