Here we are again at the end of another high season. This year has been fantastic for the food bank. We are becoming more well known throughout the north bay and it is all because of YOU. Word of mouth goes a VERY long way.
As most of you are aware, we had a few changes this year. We took on providing 50 dispensas to Tercera Edad Senior facility AND we also provided food at El Guamuchil on Christmas Day. We are now suppling food for 170 dispensas each month Except for …December when we provide 270 dispensas. The reason why we can do this is because of the help and support that you have all shown throughout the year.
YoYo Mo’s pizza and sports bar continues to be the #1 supporter. This year, they provided ALL of the tequila which we raffled at their bar. Thanks so much to Glenn Eric and Tanya Newkirk. You guys are so wonderful and we love you so much.
Our whale watching fund raiser was a HUGE success. Next year, we are hoping that it will raise as much funds as it did this year. This event has grown so much since we had our first trip. I am amazed at the support you have all given.
Of course, the food bank wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you. A special thanks needs to be given to my partner in crime Gary Winchester. You ARE the raffle king! I love ya. JD Tours/Jordan Hancock also has done so much for us again this year. They donate ALL of their commisions to the food bank for our whale watching trip. Thanks guys. You rock! Gillian Jones arranged the bus for the WW trip. Makes it much easier for us all to get to the boat. Thanks eh! Maureen Leslie, thanks you so much for helping out with the raffle prizes this year. The help was GREATLY appreciated! Thanks also to Bruce Byng/Bistro Limon/Teatro Limon for your generous support this year. You have a BIG heart.
