Food bank volunteers in Comox Valley overwhelmed by donations from campaign

Dear editor,

We, at the Comox Valley Food Bank, were simply overwhelmed with the result of the B. C. Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Dear editor,

We, at the Comox Valley Food Bank, were simply overwhelmed with the result of the B. C. Thanksgiving Food Drive conducted by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints on Sept. 21.

The organization by the church was outstanding. Our sincere thank you to the all organizers and volunteers.

We also extend our thank you to Jordan Schley, manager of Quality Foods in Courtenay who not only volunteered but whose store donated all the bags for the neighbourhood pickups.

ABC Printing, we thank you for having the leaflets printed that were on each grocery bag.

The National Car Rental agency was kind enough to give the food drive one large van for food drive bag pickup. Thank you to National.

We wish to extend our sincere thank you to the generous Comox Valley volunteers who gave of their time, the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints for their dedication. The donation results were  simply amazing, amounting to almost 11,000 pounds/5,000 kilograms!

The result of all your efforts, donations and expertise will serve the families in need in the Comox Valley for some time to come.

And finally, a heartfelt thank you to you, the generous donors of the Comox Valley who participated so very generously. Without you there would not have been a food drive!

Thank you.

Jeff Hampton,

Comox Valley
