Thrifty Foods has launched a fundraising campaign dubbed One Buck at a Time to support hospital foundations on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

One dollar from the sale of each four-pound bag of organic Buck Brand navel oranges will be donated to the foundation nearest the store of purchase.

“They’re a good seller for us,” said Doug Tinga, produce manager at Thrifty Foods in Courtenay. “They’re a great product.”

Money raised at the Courtenay store will be donated to St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation.

“This will be a big fundraiser,” Tinga said.

Fundraising progress can be tracked at www.thriftyfoods.ca.

The campaign started Wednesday and runs until March 13.

Thrifty Foods has supported hospital foundations since opening in 1977.
