The Squamish Food Bank Society received generous support from Squamish businesses during December. We just want to take a moment to thank Squamish businesses, residents and volunteers for their support.
Special thanks must go to Nesters, Save-On Foods, London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart, Stawamus School, Squamish Montessori School, Squamish Family Chiropractic (donation of Xmas stockings), Stuntwood, Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital, Squamish General Hospital, Royal Canadian Legion-Squamish, Fallen from Squamish (Facebook page), Supporters of the CBC Food Bank Day and the Salvation Army North Shore. As well, to Greg Gardner GM for sponsorship of our truck! The food bank really relies on this support to get through December and into January. Thank you to the many personal donations from residents to the food bank. Because we are not affiliated with the Christmas Care Hamper Program, we really do rely on you to help us through December.
Volunteers really put on some Santa spirit, and carry it year round at the food bank. Thanks to Nadine, Roberto, Eleanor, Chantel, Elvira, Gerry, Sabien, Brian, Marjorie, Steve, Peter, Erin, Bernie, Ray, Joan, Gerry, Alison A., Alison W., Stirling, Lindsey and Jen! We couldn’t do it without you. Thanks to the new board this year, Ken Pickering, Lois Wynn and Maureen Mackell. We are looking for additional board members with business experience. Please contact me at Squamishfoodbank@gmail.com if you are interested in serving on the board.
To donate or volunteer for the Squamish Food Bank, contact Christina at email@example.com or (604) 815-4054.
