From West Kelowna Fire Rescue
November 30, 2016
The holidays are a time of great need for West Kelowna’s local food bank and the thousands of non-perishable items collected by West Kelowna Fire Rescue during the Christmas season can keep the shelves full right through the winter.
West Kelowna Firefighters are volunteering their time to go door to door throughout the community collecting donations for the Okanagan Community Food Bank.
Firefighters will be collecting donations on the following two days:
Tuesday, December 6, 6 - 9 p.m.
Wednesday, December 7, 6 - 9 p.m.
Watch for firefighters in your neighbourhood to make your donation. Donations for the Okanagan Community Food Bank can also be dropped off at Fire Station No. 31, 3651 Old Okanagan Highway, or Fire Station No. 32, 2708 Olalla Road at any time.
In 2015, the 18th annual food drive resulted in the collection of 12,000 pounds of food to help those in need.
