Alex Dudley (right), manager of visitor services at Touchstones Nelson presented Ean Gower (left) of St. Saviours Anglican Church with the proceeds of Touchstones December food drive.

The food drive was part of Touchstones on-going monthly promotion offering members and volunteers a discount on a specific gift shop product (books, tea towels etc.). During December, they received a larger discount on any of Touchstones stock, if they brought in a food item for donation.

The 100 per cent volunteer run St. Saviours Food Pantry is open every Friday between 9 and 11 a.m. During the ongoing church renovations, the food pantry is operating out of the church’s main entrance.
