Get Fit in 30 Comox helps out the community. During our 2021 Comox Valley Food Drive held Nov. 15-31 we collected 1,5374 pounds of non-perishable food and cash donations. Many, many thanks to all who donated. Our goal was to increase our total from 2020 which was 1480 pounds. Over the last year bottle, can and juice container returns at the ReturnIt/Comox Return Center at 678 Anderton Road in Comox, donated by many Courtenay and Comox residents, amounted to a donation of $1,400 to Care-A-Van. This donation was presented to Sabina Acheson, co-ordinator at Care A Van, (left) by Rosemary Cook (Center) and John Wolsey (right). Care-A-Van, a division of the Comox Bay Care Society, is a non-profit community-funded mobile outreach health unit, providing no-fee health care and social development services directly to clients on the streets of the Comox Valley. Over the last eight years donations from this bottle and can return program have totalled $6,213, demonstrating that a little can go a very long way. Thank you to all that have contributed to this initiative. Comox Valley Food Bank accepting a donation from Gee Gibson and Associates IG Wealth Management.
