3,000 Pounds of Food Collected for Kelowna Food Bank

The Kelowna Community Food Bank and BigSteelBox thank locals for stepping up to “Fill the BigSteelBox”

May 28, 2015 – KELOWNA, B.C. BigSteelBox and the Kelowna Community Food Bank would like to thank the people of Kelowna for donating 3,000 pounds of food, and more than $800 that BigSteelBox will also be matching in a corporate donation during its “Fill the BigSteelBox” food drive last weekend. BigSteelBox, known for its moving and storage containers, placed one of its Boxes at Kelowna’s Walmart parking to encourage people fill it with food donations.

“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.” 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. The food collected in the BigSteelBox was delivered to the Kelowna Community Food Bank where it’s already being used to help those in need.

Jason Siebenga, president of BigSteelBox stated, “With our head office located in Kelowna, we love to get involved in the community and showcase the versatility our boxes in creative ways. We are thankful that this set up had such a good outcome and will be a benefit to the community.”
