UPDATE: Drive-Thru Breakfast moves to Armstrong, Vernon Co-op gas bars

United Way’s North Okanagan Drive-Thru Breakfast bags available at Regional Cooperative

Even if you missed breakfast, there’s still time to support the 20th annual United Way the North Okanagan Drive-Thru Breakfast.

Leftover bags have been moved to the Co-op gas bars in both Vernon and Armstrong.

“There’s approximately 40 or more in Armstrong,” Regional Cooperative marketing and sales manager Jason Keis said.

Every year, the event raises funds to support 20-plus social programs in the local community.

Last year, the 19-year record was smashed when more than $21,000 was raised.

Each bag has an estimated $50 worth of products and coupons inside, plus the chance at some big prizes from local businesses. A minimum donation of $20 is suggested.
