Letters to Ed

Balking at Bins

Food Bank challenge

Submitted by Gladys Hill, Kelowna BC


This letter to the editor, written by my mom, appeared in Kelowna print media prior to Christmas.


am really amazed at how people respond to a donation in lieu of an entrance fee. I went to the landing of Santa for the children at Bylands where there were boxes set aside for donations to the food bank and there was nothing in any of the boxes.


The note on the box said: $15 or a donation to the food bank.

Did every one of those families give a cash donation or why were the food bank boxes empty?

If everyone donated just a little there would be an abundance of food. So important, not just at Christmas, but throughout the year.

I donít like to think that there are a lot of selfish people who canít spare anything at allóeven one item will help.

I have never been to the food bank so I donít know what is needed, I just noticed other food bank boxes are empty as well.

Is my bag going to be the only bag of food in the boxes?

I would like to challenge all the people of West Kelowna to drop an item or two in one of the available food bank boxes placed around West Kelowna.
