The Cloverdale and Langley branch of the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive collected a record-breaking amount of donations this year.
“Our food drive was a record-breaking success. We collected 35,000 lbs in donations for the Langley Food Bank, which is a 10 per cent increase from last year,” said organizer Scott Friesen.
The massive province-wide food drive is held annually throughout the province. In 2017, more than half a million pounds of food was collected by more than 5,000 volunteers across B.C.
“We look forward to even bigger things next year!” said Friesen.
