Staff at the the Williams Lake & District Credit Union raised 4,125 food items for the Salvation Army food bank over a four-week period. Staff formed four teams with a goal of collecting non-perishable food items. The team with the highest number of items each week gained bragging rights. Forty-four staff members — through their personal efforts and generosity, as well as with some help from business and personal members — collected the items. The Williams Lake branch also donated $3,180 to the Salvation Army.

The top overall team was the Grub Hunters, with a four-week total of 1,286 items.

“Thank you is not enough,” Salvation Army Captain Randy Kadonaga told the staff on Thursday. “I am just in awe by this and what you have done.”
