Fire department gives thanks

A whole lot of people and organizations helped make food drive a success

The Parksville Volunteer Fire Department Association would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of Parksville for helping to make our annual food and toy drive a success once again this year.

After our door to door collection this past weekend, we collected approximately 12,000 pounds of food as well as numerous toy donations and a generous amount of cash.  Donations are still coming in!

We would like to acknowledge the many local businesses that also supported our food drive.  Quality Foods, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, BFI Canada Inc., Parksville Chrysler, Oceanside Chev, Joe Cunningham Ford, Thrifty Foods, French Creek Seafood, Bradley’s on Jensen, Home Hardware, Lordco, Pretty Things Gift Shop, French Creek Pub, Parkswest, Arrowsmith Bikes, Tigh Na Mara, Shoppers Drug Mart, Great Canadian Oil Change, Chuffins Cafe, Boston Pizza, Panago, Pizza Hut, Quiznos, EB Horsman, Don Klint and 88.5 The Beach.

Thank you to the many volunteers at the Salvation Army Food Bank that spent the weekend sorting and weighing the donations as we delivered them!

A special thank you to the Salvation Army for providing our members and families with breakfast before we set out!
