Instead of corporate gifts to clients, Okanagan Restoration Services will support those in need.
A $1,600 donation is being provided to 12 food banks across the region.
“We believe in giving back in the communities we live and work in and this is a way we can help people in need to have food on the table for Christmas,” said Kelly Moorhouse, the company’s chief administrative officer.
Among those receiving assistance is the Vernon food bank.
“Thanks to generous community support and great businesses such as Okanagan Restoration Services, the Salvation Army continues to meet basic human needs, restoring hope and dignity for those unable to help themselves,” said Jean-Curtis Plante, with the Vernon food bank.
Okanagan Restoration Services was founded in 1992 and has locations in Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton.
