The employees at Vernon’s downtown Safeway wants to start the community’s day off right with a healthy breakfast in support of local breast cancer research.

The 30th Avenue business is hosting the 2013 Drive-Thru Breakfast Thursday from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the parking lot.

“We are putting together pre-packaged breakfast and it’s going to be 100 per cent by donation,” said Jon Graham, assistant manager.

Dressed in pink, staff will be delivering breakfasts to motorists, or those walking through, in support of breast cancer research.

“It all stays local which is huge because we all know someone who has been touched by breast cancer,” said Graham.

The fire department will also be lending a hand and there will be prizes, such as gift cards, given out.

Those who can’t make it to the event Thursday  can also stop by the store and donate for a chance at winning the daily turkey giveaway every day until Thanksgiving.

“We raised $1,200 just through the check stand (on the first day – Tuesday),” said Graham.
