Joe Rich residents raise big bucks for food bank

Lots of money and cash raised in a snowy food drive Sunday

Through the generosity of Joe Rich residents

The 12th annual Joe Rich Fire Rescue community food drive last Sunday was a big success.

Members of the Joe Rich Fire Rescue department went door-to-door throughout the community in snowy conditions and found the spirit of Christmas alive and well.

More than 1,200 pounds of food was donated along with just over $1,100 in cash. All the donations were turned over last evening to the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

Joe Rich Fire Rescue members would like to thank the community for its ongoing support of the effort to help those in need during the holiday season.
