Operation Food Drive is back in action for a third year.

Operation Food Drive is back in action for a third year.

Silver Star Mountain Resort will be on location at Wal-Mart, the Village Green Centre, Superstore and the Vernon Square Safeway  Nov. 19 to generate support for the Salvation Army food bank.

“We are excited about the opportunity to give something back to the community again and the food bank helps so many people,” said Michael Sherwood, general manager.

Last year, the group raised more than $6,000 and the goal is to reach $10,000.

Representatives will be at the locations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. selling discounted opening weekend day tickets to Silver Star for just $20.

Purchases must be made in cash only and 100 per cent of the proceeds go to the Vernon food bank.  There will also be containers on site to collect non-perishable food items.

The lift tickets are $20 for all age groups, and there is no limit to the number purchased.

Opening weekend is set for Nov. 24 to 27.
