Lake Country, BC – Firefighters in fire trucks will, once again, be heading door to door in Lake Country neighbourhoods on December 4 and 6 to collect non-perishable donations for the Lake Country Food Bank.

After COVID-19 meant some changed plans in 2020 and 2021, the Lake Country Fire Department is pleased to restart this annual event.

“Lake Country firefighters love the annual food drive and, although we participated in a more subdued fashion last year and raised a good-sized donation for the food bank, we’re all looking forward to the collection drive this year,” said Deputy Fire Chief, Brent Penner. “Nothing beats getting out in the community, seeing the generosity and good cheer on the faces of the families. It’s a great feeling and it’s a positive, supportive thing to do for our community.”

The firefighters will be in the community as follows:

Carr’s Landing Neighbourhood
Sunday, December 4 starting at 10 a.m.

Okanagan Centre, Oyama and Winfield Neighborhoods
Tuesday, December 6 starting at 6 p.m.

Watch for flashing lights and fire apparatus. You can help the firefighters’ make a swifter journey through our community by leaving donated items on your doorstep with a note.

If you miss the firefighters, please consider donating directly to the LAKE COUNTRY FOOD BANK. They have many ways to donate to help those in our community suffering from food insecurity.
