The 38th annual Realtors Food Drive takes place today in Greater Vernon, Armstrong and Enderby, starting at 5 p.m.

Items collected in Armstrong will go to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club food bank while those collected in Enderby will go to the Feed Enderby and District Food Bank.

In Greater Vernon, donations will help the Salvation Army food bank.

“Each single can of food given and received adds to a pile that grows into an enormous amount that will keep the shelves of the food banks open,” said Dawn Taylor, food drive co-ordinator.

Lumby realtors will not be going door to door today but donations can be dropped off at real estate offices in the village.
