In an effort to serve the less fortunate, the Salvation Army is hoping the spirit of giving will extend beyond Christmas.

As of Dec. 23, the community has supported the food bank by helping raise 76 per cent of its $461,000 goal.

“That 76 per cent includes the more than $6,700 collected at Saturday’s Walmart Matching Day, yet still translates into a need to raise an additional $109,000 by Dec. 31,” said David MacBain, community ministries director.

“Funds raised this Christmas help us serve our community both now and throughout 2014 at our House of Hope.”

Financial donations can be made anytime online at www.vernonbcfoodbank.com (with instant receipting), or mailed by Dec. 31 to 3303 32nd Ave., Vernon, BC V1T 2M7.

Over the holiday season contributions can still be received at the Talkin Donkey Coffee House during business hours, or delivered to the Food Bank on Monday until 3 p.m.

For financial donations to The Salvation Army’s Enderby Food Bank donors can go online to the brand new http://my.salvationarmy.ca/enderby link (with instant receipting), or they can mail cheques marked “Enderby Food Bank” to 3303 32nd Ave., Vernon, BC V1T 2M7 by Dec. 31.

 

“We have been unable to find sufficient hosts to have a Christmas kettle in Enderby this year so donations online and by mail are greatly appreciated,” said MacBain.
