West Kelowna’s firefighters will go door to door next month to collect donations for the food bank.

The holidays are a time of great need for the food bank and the thousands of non-perishable items collected by West Kelowna Fire Rescue during its annual Christmas season food donation collection can keep the shelves full through the winter.

The firefighters will volunteer their time to participate in the food drive.

The collection will take place on Dec. 5 and 6, between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. both days.

Donations for the Okanagan Community Food Bank can also be dropped off at main West Kelowna fire station on Old Okanagan Highway in Westbank or at the the fire station on Olalla Road in Lakeview Heights at any time.
