Kelowna charity donation to Salvation Army feeds local community

The Gary Bennet Family Fund donated $3,000 to local Salvation Army locations to fund food programs

A Kelowna charity donated $3,000 to Salvation Army food programs.

The Salvation Army of Kelowna and Westside has experienced increased demand for its services and programs over the past year.

To address food insecurity in the central Okanagan, the Gary Bennett Family Fund and its supporters donated $1,500 to West Kelowna and Kelowna Salvation Army locations.

“We are proud to support the work of the Westside and Kelowna Salvation Army because of the work they do and the way they do it,” said Gary Bennett.

The emergency food basket program, which will receive part of the funding, is one of the valuable services provided by The Salvation Army. The program is designed to meet the nutritional needs of people living on the streets.

Funds were spent at the Westbank Real Canadian Superstore to purchase stable, healthy and ready-to-eat food essentials including; boost, 100% fruit snacks, ready-to-eat soups, tuna and protein bars.
