Drive-thru breakfast helps United Way

The United Way will hold its drive-thru breakfast fundraiser Thursday at the Best Western Vernon Lodge

The most important meal of the day will help critical community services in the North Okanagan.

The United Way will hold its drive-thru breakfast fundraiser Thursday at the Best Western Vernon Lodge from 6 to 9 a.m.

“Let’s make this 15th annual event the best ever,” said Linda Yule, executive director.

Funds raised during the event will go towards non-profit agencies supported by the United Way.

Among the agencies are the Enderby Family Resource Centre, the First Nations Friendship Centre, the North Okanagan Shuswap Brain Injury Society, the North Okanagan Therapeutic Riding Association, the Upper Room Mission and the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre.

Breakfast bags will be available by donation and some will contain prizes. Local dignitaries will also wash your car window and serve you coffee.

Yule is hoping for a successful event, which kicks off United Way’s fall campaign.

“Support your United Way in helping kids of all ages be all that they can be, moving people from poverty to possibility and having healthy people in strong communities.”
