Motorhome campaign helps feed hungey

Big Boy’s Toys RV Center is helping to feed central Vancouver Island’s hungry.

Big Boy’s Toys RV Center is helping to feed central Vancouver Island’s hungry with its annual campaign to fill a motorhome with food.

The campaign runs until Dec. 15, assisting the Salvation Army and mid Island food banks cope with increased demands over the holiday season.

In the last three years, more than 10,400 kilograms of food as well as cash donations have been donated.

The motorhome will be making stops at most Quality Food stores, Royal Bank branches, and Mid Island Co-op locations in Nanaimo, Parksville and Qualicum.

Donations can also be dropped off at Big Boys Toys, 1421 E. Island Hwy., Nanoose Bay.
