Each holiday season

Successful food drive

Each holiday season, employees from TD Bank in Prince Rupert have taken it upon themselves to help those living in need in the community.

Each holiday season, employees from the TD Bank in Prince Rupert have taken it upon themselves to help those living in need in the community by holding both a food drive and winter accessories collection.

This holiday will be employee Phat Tran’s third annual food drive, collecting over 800 items to be donated to the Salvation Army this year alone. Employees Cynthia Rosario and Lucy Ferreira started the mitten tree five years ago now, a Christmas tree that people whom wish to donate mittens, toques or scarves can put the items on to. These items are then brought to elementary schools around town, and are given to children in need. This year approximately 60 items will be divided and donated to Lax Kxeen and Roosevelt.

Pictured above are Tran, Rosario and Captain Gary Sheils from the Salvation Army posing in front of the food items collected, and the mitten tree.
