The Bulkley Valley Food Bank will be getting reloaded this Thanksgiving Weekend with Safeway in Smithers putting on their annual Thanks For Giving Food Drive.
Manager of the store Matt Hexter says there’s always a need in small communities like Smithers – he says the generosity makes up for it.
“Our customers have traditionally been so generous,” says Hexter. “There’s always a need in all the food banks…the people of Smithers are always so generous to give.”
Starting today, Hexter says there’s 5 and 10 dollar food hampers that also credit air miles.
Last year there were able to raise over 35 hundred dollars.
