Thanks for giving Campbell River

Thanks for giving  Volunteers load some of the food collected Saturday as part of the BC Thanksgiving Food Crive. Coordinators of the Campbell River segment of the drive announced that nearly 9,000 pounds of food were collected this past Saturday, and donated to the Campbell River food bank. Seventy-four volunteers were involved in the project, which included dropping off bags (provided by Quality Foods) and flyers (provided by Sure Copy) during the week, and then picking up and loading the donations on Saturday. This year, over 2500 homes were visited. The project was started in 2011, and has steadily grown – organizers are looking forward to even bigger numbers in 2014. - Alistair Taylor/The Mirror
