Three very full Cariboo GM truck-loads of gifts and food were donated at the Tribune’s annual Food and Toy Drive Saturday.

The crew cabs were stuffed full to keep items from being damaged by the rain.

A total of $330 in cash was also donated for the Salvation Army Christmas Cheer program.

In exchange for their gift or cash donations, visitors were given gifts or gift certificates supplied by participating merchants.

Tribune staff and volunteers moved the donations to the Salvation Army where Christmas Cheer food hampers and gifts for children will be distributed this Friday.

Volunteers can help with Friday’s distribution by calling Sabrina Silvey at 250-392-2429 or wlfoodbank@shaw.ca.
