From barbecues, apple picking, blue jean days, staff food collection and an evening campout by one of the partners on the roof of Save On Foods, the Vernon BDO Canada office staff and partners worked hard to collect items over a five-week period for the local Salvation Army food bank.
The initial goal of 5,000 pounds of food was exceeded by more than double.
“After dropping off the last of our collections, it was a good feeling seeing the shelves at the food bank full and knowing that we played a small role in it,” said employee Aidan Northcott.
Rogers Foods, of Spallumcheen, helped by donating one ton of flour on BDO’s behalf.
BDO would like to say thank you to all who helped make the Drive Away Hunger campaign a success.
