Valley foodbank fundraiser surpasses goal

Earlier this year, Star Nap and her children stopped by the Comox Valley Food Bank to donate some fresh items and asked what kind of help they needed the most.

When she found out cash is most needed to purchase fresh food throughout the winter along with dairy, she got to work with an ornament fundraiser, with funds to be donated to the food bank.

Following a sale last month at the Fiesta World Craft Bazaar, the family raised $1,424.85 which was donated Saturday.

“This exceeds our $1,200 goal, which means we will be able to pay for one full month of milk, plus $242 of fresh produce,” she said.

The family plans on doing the sale again next year and is looking for ‘crafty people’ to join the group to make ornaments.
