Lake Country Food Bank needs volunteers

Thanks to the work of the Lake Country Food Bank hundreds of people receive assistance in helping to make ends meet.
It’s an important job and it certainly couldn’t be done without the help of businesses, and individuals donating food and money generously to help their neighbours.
No matter how generously people are willing to give though, the service can’t be provided without volunteers.
Phyllis MacPherson, manager of the Food Bank for more than 25 years, says times are hard in the volunteer department right now. She needs helpers to keep the Food Bank running.
Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Phyllis at the Food Bank at 250-766-0125 or speak to her at home at 250-766-3038.
Help is needed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The volunteers are fun to work with and it’s a great way to get out of the house and make new friends.
