CARSTAR Courtenay is supporting the Comox Valley Food Bank.

CARSTAR Courtenay donates to Comox Valley Food Bank

CARSTAR Courtenay owner Ryan Isherwood is no stranger to giving back. Thanks to support staffers and office co-ordinator Kristy Silverthorn, the facility is able to raise funds annually for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, provide veterans a free windshield treatment, and support local fundraisers.

“The only reason we can be in the position to make donations like this are because of all the hard work our employees put in every day, at both locations,” says Isherwood, owner of, CARSTAR Courtenay and Duncan. “Supporting causes like the Comox Valley Food Bank are important to us because it helps us spread the joy during this cheery season and ensures it’s a happy holiday for everyone in the Comox Valley area.”

The Comox Valley Food Bank distributes free supplementary food to people in need. As a non-profit organization committed to reducing hunger since 1983, it gathers food and cash donations to support food distribution and collection programs. Reaching a wide range of urban and rural populations from Oyster River in the north to Cook Creek in the south, including Hornby and Denman Island residents, the CV food bank is helping a record number of clients accessing its services.
