The manager of Whistlers Food Bank, Sandra McCarthy, and a group of volunteers will be asking for donations next week in preparation for the Christmas rush.
On Friday, Nov. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. there will be food bank stalls set up outside the three grocery stores in Whistler.
"Im just starting to get into the thick of it now, but its still not as bad as it has been in other years," said McCarthy. "Im getting low (on food), but the way Ive planned it is that now well start to get re-supplied by donations needed for Christmas.
"We start at 5 p.m. and were out front of the three different grocery stores in town and well be handing out flyers for the desired items that we need. And theyll be able to see it posted in the stores because there will be stickers on the items we really would like to have."
McCarthy also needs volunteers to help pack the food once its collected. Volunteers are asked to call McCarthy at 604-905-8023.
