Hospital foundation donation

THRIFTY FOODS CROWN ISLE store manager Jeff Ackinclose, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation
THRIFTY FOODS CROWN ISLE store manager Jeff Ackinclose, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation's Marianne Woodrow and Meghan Liddle and Thrifty Foods Courtenay store manager Andy Carter proudly display a cheque for $6,796 for St. Joseph's General Hospital Foundation. Thrifty Foods' Pumpkins for Charity raised $5,796 this year — thanks to a special $2 per pumpkin donation from the company coinciding with the opening of the Crown Isle location in Courtenay — plus $1,000 from the Pumpkin Photos Contest on Facebook.
