ThreePoint Capital rang the bells for The Salvation Army Kelowna annual kettle campaign last week. Ringing the bells has become a tradition for our team and we love being a part of this important initiative. Thank you for every donation, every dollar helps those in need in our community!
This year marked the 20th year of the Royal LePage Kelowna's Fill the Van for the Sally Ann. And once again the hearts of the Royal LePage Kelowna team shone thru as they collected over $34,000 in food and cash donations. Year after year this group stands in the cold on a cold December days to gather donations for those who need little extra help in life. This year reinforced the dedication of this team. As I went to each @Save On Foods location I met the volunteers I heard stories from many of them who's families had been impacted by the The Salvation Army Kelowna over the years. Some families had received toys at Christmas and others food hampers. All of them shared how in the midst of the hard The Salvation Army Kelowna had come to their families when they needed help with HOPE. I am so proud to work for the Salvation Army Kelonwa but equally as proud to live in such a giving and caring community! Thank you Royal LePage Kelowna, the companies that come alongside of you and our beautiful community for giving HOPE!
When our team learned that The Salvation Army Kelowna food bank was low on supplies, we organized an office food drive to help stock their shelves! They are still in need of staple products such as soup, cereal, canned vegetables & beans, pasta, & oatmeal. You can help too by dropping off these items at any Salvation Army location in Kelowna. #GivingHopeToday
Thank you Do Some Good! We have consistently attracted volunteers through your platform! Moms and college students looking for ways to give back as well as office workers looking for ideas to get out into nature and help in their community!
In June, Scotia Wealth Management/Scotiabank will be hosting the 3rd annual End Summer Hunger campaign in conjunction the The Salvation Army Central Okanagan and Kelowna Save-on Foods. This campaign raises cash and food donations for community members in need. The past success of this event has allowed food shelves to remain filled throughout the summer. The massive success and growth of this event has been made possible through the generous members and businesses of the community. We are actively spreading the word of our goal for 2019... to beat last years record cash and food donation amount of $26,000.00 by raising $50,000 this year. If you or anyone you know might be interested in making this goal possible, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am available by phone (250-868-5513) or email (email@example.com).
The snow is still hanging around, but we are getting excited to start our vegetable gardens in about a month! We will be almost doubling our plot size in Kelowna and will need a lot of help from you amazing volunteers! We have received 5 applications in the past week through Do Some Good, so thank you! Our goal this year is to grow 25,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to feed families in the valley.
The team at SPEIR Wealth Management Inc. was happy to lend a hand at The Salvation Army Central Okanagan donations centre on Hunter Rd! What an operation, sorting through the loads of incoming clothing and goods! Big thanks to this hardworking team for welcoming us and look forward to coming back to help again soon!
