Motorhome campaign parks at co-ops

Mid Island Co-op has teamed up with Big Boys Toys and Quality Foods to fill a motorhome with food.

Mid Island Co-op has teamed up with Big Boys Toys and Quality Foods to fill a motorhome with food.

With food banks suffering a shortage of donations, the businesses are determined to help beat the 14,000 kilograms of food raised last year.

The fourth annual Big Boy’s Toys Fill This Motorhome with Food campaign is underway until Dec. 15.

The motorhome will be at the Cranberry Avenue Mid Island Co-op gas bar Nov. 30 from noon to 3 p.m. and the Bowen Road location Dec. 6 from noon to 3 p.m.

Pre-packaged Quality Foods donation bags and barbecued hotdogs will be available for a donation.

For more information about the motorhome’s co-op stops or to make a donation, please call  250-279-8413 or visit www.midisland.coop.
