The staff and realtors at Nelson’s RE/MAX RHC Realty, with the support and assistance of Save-On-Foods recently held a food drive for the local Salvation Army. At the beginning of Hunger Awareness Week, the RE/MAX folks set up outside of Save-On and encouraged people to either buy a bag of groceries to donate or make a cash contribution. Thanks to the generosity of the shoppers, between the grocery purchases and cash received, more than $2,000 was raised. Last week all those involved gathered for a cheque presentation: (L to R) Lisa Cutler, Lorne Westnedge, Major Yvonne Borrows, Dave Buss, Major Robin Borrows, Glen Darough, Trina Walsh and Save-On store manager Ron World.
