Sale feeds a need

A garage sale and bottle drive will be held at the Salvation Army Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Greater Vernon residents can help the local food bank stock its shelves for winter.

A garage sale and bottle drive will be held at the Salvation Army Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The garage sale will have a wide assortment of goods for sale, such as toys, books, household goods, tools, and sporting goods,” said Renee deTourdonnet, with BDO Canada, which is organizing the event.

“Bottles and cans will also be collected to be sorted and taken the to the bottle depot.”

The event is part of BDO’s annual Drive Away Hunger campaign, which brought in almost 11,000 pounds of food locally last year.

“The great thing about this event, is that 100 per cent of the proceeds will go directly to the food bank” said deTourdonnet

Anyone with items to donate to the event can contact deTourdonnet at 250-545-2136.
