Okanagan Boys and Girls Club

The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club Richter Street Centre is going bananas!  They have really high numbers at the shelter again these days, the kids are inside, they’re safe, they’re engaged … they’re hungry.

Sarah MacKinnon, Boys and Girls Club Centre Director asked if we could help.    Thanks to our donors, we delivered milk, orange juice, cereal, bread and BANANAS!  Special thanks to our Costco friends for making this possible. 

Good Deeds

Okanagan Mission Lions Club delivers $1,500 in much needed tuna, soup, canned fruit and vegetables to the Kelowna Food Bank.  Their annual spring donation helps to restock shelves emptied through winter. The items are purchased at a discount from London Drugs.   

Club members Bill, Ray, Wes and Gord (from L-R) unload the pallet of food.  The Kelowna Food Bank would like to thank all 36 club members and London Drugs for their ongoing community support.

Hunger Ride

The proceeds are from  Sunday Hunger Ride 2014.  Over 50 motorcyclists rode from West Kelowna to Osoyoos Sunday to raise $7,500 for Okanagan food banks.
