Bella Coola Food Bank thanks businesses and individuals for their support

The Bella Coola Food Bank serves on average 90 to 100 individuals, couples and families nine months of the year. The Food Bank operates on generous donations of money from Business and individuals as well as volunteer time. The Food Bank also receives canned and dry goods through Canadian Food Banks Association and receives subsidized shipping through Food Banks BC. With the generous donations this year, we were once again able to provide a larger amount during the holiday season.

The Food Bank Committee would sincerely like to thank the following businesses: the Bella Coola Coop for storage, patience, and assistance, the Hagensborg Store for the donations and their sponsoring of the Toonie-at-the-Till program, Townsite Maintenance Centre for their generous donations; and for helping us with their fork lift when we were stuck. Many other businesses that have supported the Food Bank this year are PMT Accounting, Williams Lake and District Credit Union, Kopas Store, Evans Printing, Belco Service, Tweedsmiur Travel, and Pacific Coastal Airlines.

We would also like to thank and acknowledge the strong support of the Bella Coola Elementary School, Sir Alexander Mackenzie School, the Seventh Day Adventist School, The Canadian Jr. Rangers, and the Central Coast Teachers Association for their donations and efforts in collecting food in the community. We would also like to thank the following individuals that donated:   Doris and Sam Nelson, Mark and Lynn Nelson, Lynnette and Lenard Kozak, Sandie Maclaurin, Joan Sawicki-Runka, Deloris Vosburg, Joan Cole, and Colin and Beverly McMillian. The Pentecostal Church hosts the monthly Food Bank, and we thank them for their support. If we have missed anyone, our sincere apologies, thank you to the whole community for your continued support.

If you wish to donate to the Food Bank a charitable tax receipt is available. Please phone the Bella Coola Community Support Society 250 799 5588 for more information.
