The Spirits of the West Coast Art Gallery is asking for donations to its Food Bank Drive and Fundraiser.
The fundraiser, beginning Monday and going until Dec. 31, will give participants an opportunity to win a gift bag from Northwest Coast Indigenous Gifts valued at $250 and have their donations matched up to $5,000 by the gallery.
Non-perishable donations will also be taken by the gallery. They are suggesting items like beans, rice, pasta, canned meat, fruit, vegetables, toiletries and paper products.
“We are thankful to the community for the donations thus far, and are looking to make an even bigger and meaningful impact with this year’s Food Bank Drive,” said co-owner Walter Stolting.
The art gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday. It is located at 2926 Back Road between East Courtenay and Comox.
