The 37th annual Realtors Food Drive runs today in Armstrong, Coldstream Enderby and Vernon.

“As realtors, we give our time and resources to this worthwhile event because it is a way to give back to the community we care about,” said Dawn Taylor, food drive organizer.

Non-perishable food items that are collected will be donated to the community food banks in Armstrong, Enderby and Vernon.

Vernon realtors will be joined during the food drive by staff from financial institutions and the local branch of the Early Childhood Educators of B.C. In Enderby, realtors will be joined by Enderby Financial and A.L. Fortune Secondary students.

The food drive will begin at 5 p.m. in all communities.

There will not be a door-to-door campaign in Lumby but residents can drop food off at the Lumby real estate offices.
