On Friday, November 25th, between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., local RCMP officers will be at the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce Light Up collecting donations in support of the Armstrong Food Bank.
The demand on local food banks has never been higher and they are under so much pressure right now, states Constable Ashley Allen of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP.
We wanted to do something to help stock their shelves and ease that demand so they can continue to support those in need.
Community members are invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy, non-perishable food item, cash, or grocery store gift cards to support the cause. All items collected will go directly to the Armstrong Food Bank.
When: Friday, November 25, 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Where: Pleasant Valley Blvd (Outside of Monashee Outdoors)
If community members wish to donate and are looking for specific ideas for donations, some of the items in greatest need are:
- Instant noodles;
- Canned fruit and veggies;
- Canned meats;
- School snacks;
- Cooking oil;
- Dish soap.
This is a way we can give back and help make someone’s Holiday a little brighter, but we need your help, adds Allen.
If you’re coming down to the light up, stop by, say hi, and don’t forget to bring your donation!
