Thank you for Helping Us Fill a BigSteelBox with 3,000lbs of Food for the Kelowna Food Bank!
After our two-day food drive at the Kelowna Walmart last weekend, we are so excited to announce that with the generous support of the many Kelowna residents we met that weekend, we were able to collect over 3,000lbs of food and over $800 for the Kelowna Community Food Bank!
BigSteelBox is also happy to be matching the cash amount raised with an additional $800 corporate donation to the Kelowna Food Bank for a total cash donation of over $1,600.
These donations came at a time when the Food Bank is in extreme need of many key items. Late spring and early summer are typically the times of the year when donations are at their lowest.
“We are overjoyed and very appreciative of the donations we received this weekend,” says Tammy Jackson, of the Kelowna Community Food Bank. “It was great to see residents of Kelowna so eager to contribute donations that will help those in need.”
"We’re really excited to be a part of an event like this where our staff can get involved and work for such a great cause as the Kelowna Food Bank," says Jason Siebenga, President of BigSteelBox.
"We believe this is just the beginning of the "Fill the BigSteelBox” for the Food Bank food drive, and plan to make it something we hold year after year," he continues.
Also, a big congratulations to the winner of our draw for an iPad mini, Tanya Harnett! Thank you Tanya, and everyone else who made the "Fill the BigSteelBox” food drive such a huge success!
