These wonderful people from Shockers Basketball Academy 🏀 spent some time with us on Friday afternoon sorting the more than 940 pounds they collected during a food drive organized and hosted by the team!!!
On Sat. May 4, hundreds supported the Central Okanagan Food Bank during the Taste of Downtown. It was an amazing day, one for the record books as more than $9,000 was raised for the food bank.
