The COVID-19 pandemic meant spending a lot of time painting rocks for a group of 12 artists in Qualicum Beach.
Led by Janet Tullis, the group started painting rocks to raise money for the local food bank. They managed to decorate 300 stones and raise $2,300 while set up at a booth on Memorial Avenue by the CIBC bank in Qualicum Beach over two Saturdays.
“And now we would like an opportunity to present a cheque to the Salvation Army for the Food Bank with some local recognition for their unbelievable accomplishment,” said Tullis. “The project was a win win, in that, it gave the artists something to do during the isolation and at the same time raise money for the Food Bank.”
