Food Bank Fundraiser


Cowichan Food Bank Fundraiser

At Speedy Glass in Duncan, we’re all about Family & Community here in the Cowichan and never more so than at the most wonderful time of the year!

We are big supporters of local Cowichan events and recently we had the pleasure of helping out with the 4th Annual Toys Toiletries & Toques food bank fundraiser organized by the Cowichan Valley Social Media Club to provide non-food items to all 5 Cowichan Food Banks. This annual event focusses on helping our community by collecting new, non-food items to help build the Christmas Hampers for the 5 Cowichan Valley food banks.

From the website : The 4th Annual Toys Toiletries & Toques is a fundraiser held by Cowichan Valley Social Media Club to provide non-food items to all 5 Cowichan Food Banks. We saw a need for the basic essentials, outside of food and gifts, for the Cowichan Valley during the holiday season. Every year since inception, we have increased our capacity to help. What started as filling up just two vehicles has grown to last year having to use a one-ton cargo van. The people of Cowichan Valley have been generous in their support. It isn’t money we are asking for (although we take that too), we are asking to help out on the things that always get forgotten about. The warm toques, the toilet paper, the toothpaste, the basic essentials of life. These are the things we are seeking in our drive.

Well on December 6th, we set up our Tent and provided the Speedy Glass Duncan Van out in front of Walmart at Cowichan Commons for a very good cause.
