Thanks, TELUS!

A few times each year, Telus supplies us with hygiene kits to support folks who may not have the critical basics: a toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, a facecloth and soap.

We are proud to share these kits with amazing partner agencies in our community, who can get these right into the like hands of people who need it most like Metro Community and H.O.P.E. Okanagan

Students from Vancouver College of Art & Design are using their time and talent this spring, to create a 3D animated advertisement for the Central Okanagan Food Bank! Justin Boardman, a student who volunteers for the COFB heard about the recent rise in need and was compelled to bring over 25 students together to produce the advertisement which the group hopes will raise awareness and encourage monthly donations toward the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

TELUS Share Your Story has upped the stakes, with a contest that is offering a $10,000 prize to be awarded to the chosen charity. Please spread the word and SHARE THIS POST!
