ocal retailer Canadian Liquidation has responded to a need and made a generous donation of a large stainless steel fridge and a double oven to the Cultus Lake Community School to help support their hot lunch program.

"Over the summer the Community School fridge stopped working and their stove was getting close to the end of its useful life" according to Cultus Lake Community School Principal Wade Gemmell. "We rely on this equipment in our PAC kitchen to help support our lunch programs, special events as well as various community events."

Cultus Lake Community School PAC President Jocelyn Pickering explains the programs in more detail. "Our public school uses the kitchen for our breakfast and lunch program. This program feeds children who do not get or forget breakfast and lunch. We also have a hot lunch every Friday and this is a fundraiser for classrooms and PAC to help pay for extra things not in the budget. Our kitchen feeds on average 120 for hot lunch."

Despite actively fund raising the Parent Advisory Council was still significantly short the dollars required to purchase replacements. On behalf of the PAC, small business advocate Live! Chilliwack made the request and Canadian Liquidation responded immediately with a replacement stove with a double oven and a giant stainless steel fridge that fit the budget of the school and got the lunch program back in full production. 

"Donating is always a good feeling but donating within your own community feels even better. You get to see what your contribution has done first hand." says Shazia Shahid, owner of Canadian Liquidation.
