Stuff-a-Truck helps food banks

Caroline Davidson encourages people to help local food banks during the upcoming Stuff-a-Truck event.

Editor:

On Dec. 8-12, the Stuff-a-Truck event sponsored by Juice FM (formerly Sun FM) will be at the Save-On-Foods store in Duncan from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. When you go there to buy for yourself, remember the needs of others and pick out something to donate to them.

Stuff-a-Truck donations will be shared with five food banks in this area. Don’t forget that everyone needs those personal products such as toilet paper, shampoo, shaving cream and razors, feminine supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste and diapers. The Food Bank buys only food and depends on you to supply these extras. You will be thanked and will feel good.

We are looking for volunteers to help at the truck for a couple of hours gathering the donations, thanking the people and sorting the items. Call Caroline at 250-245-2426 for more information.

Food Bank recipients often try to give something back to the Bank. One senior woman brings herbs and vegetables from her garden as her way of paying back. One woman has helped on the committee working for homeless people. Some young men help by carrying groceries for seniors. Many others offer help in some way.
