The annual Christmas in July (July 22 2018 at the Sooke Legion) raised $2,100 for the Sooke Food Bank at their annual summer event. Another $176 was raised from their 50/50 draw. Lastly, there was also a donation of 50 backpacks filled with school supplies, individually compiled and donated by Shauna Francis and Pat Carr.
“I am so grateful for this help,” said Kim Metzger, the Sooke Food Bank President. “It validates all the hours I volunteer at the food bank, and shows that others also deeply care. Sooke is an amazing community.”
