DONATIONS SNOWBALL TOWARD FOOD BANK

Kamloops Food Band executive director Bernadette Siracky (second from right) joins Sun Peaks Resort Corporation events co-ordinator Devin Knopf (left), marketing director Anne Haight and marketing  manager Sam Egan in unloading a huge trailer of food delivered by the resort. The food donation came as a  result of items brought to the ski hill on Toonie Day (Dec. 3), when skiers also donated $4,089.23 for the food bank. Skiers and boarders purchased full-day lift passes on Dec. 3 for $2, plus a non-perishable food donation for the food bank. Last year, Sun Peaks’ community and its guests raised more than $6,000 through its winter and summer Toonie Day events. In 2011, 6,810 people used the Kamloops Food Bank, in addition to 40 community agencies that created meal programs.   - DAVE EAGLES PHOTO/KTW
