Help the food bank Saturday

This Saturday is the ninth annual Tribune Food and Toy Drive.

This Saturday is the ninth annual Tribune Food and Toy Drive.

Please help support the Salvation Army Food Bank by dropping off nonperishable food items, toys, or money at the Tribune office at 188 North First Ave. between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Your help is greatly needed, and we appreciate and thank every individual, business, and organization that have joined with us in previous years to give a helping hand up to those who are struggling to make ends meet.

Many people in our community continue to bear hardships and they deserve to have a meaningful and happy Christmas with food on the table and toys under their Christmas trees for their children.

Those in need could be your friends, your neighbours, or even a member of your family.

We urge you, from the bottom of our hearts, to please stop by with a monetary donation, toys, or nonperishable food items such as soups, pasta, pasta sauces, peanut butter, canned meats and beans, and canned fruits and vegetables.

In exchange, you’ll get to pick an envelope from our Christmas tree.

Included in each envelope will be the name of the prize you will win.

And you will also have a chance at winning one of our grand prizes: a set of four passenger winter tires from 150 M&S Tire & Service; a half-day spa package from Eloquence Spa; a reversible gold chain, valued at $363, from Excelsior Jewellers; and round-trip airfare for two to Vancouver from Pacific Coastal Airlines.

The Salvation Army continues to see a large number of clients needing help this season.

Though the deadline to apply for supplementary Christmas assistance isn’t until Dec. 16, the Salvation Army has already identified a need for 160 food hampers, plus toys and gifts for 200 children, from babies to teens.

Please take part in the Tribune Food and Toy Drive and help fill the food bank’s shelves, as many of you did last December.
