Firefighters head door to door for West Kelowna, B.C. meals drive – Okanagan

If a West Kelowna firefighter shows up to your door this week, you probably don’t need to be alarmed.

It’s just the 25th Annual Holiday Food Drive in support of the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

Firefighters and staff will volunteer their time, going door to door in a handful of neighbourhoods from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and Wednesday, Dec. 7, to collect non-perishable food donations.

“We’re not able to make it to every neighbourhood throughout the Greater Westside, but we invite our community to drop by their neighbourhood fire hall and leave a non-perishable food donation in the collection bins set up outside,” West Kelowna Fire Chief, Jason Brolund said in a press release.
