The Surrey Board of Trade, at its annual Christmas Seasonal Sizzle Business Reception on Dec. 3, gave the Surrey Food Bank $2,040.50 and 998 pounds of food.

More than 500 business people attended the annual Christmas event and donated either cash or food.

"Thank you to all the businesses that attended this annual Christmas event for the business community. The Surrey Food Bank's line ups are increasing each year unfortunately, with not only families with young children but also seniors. Businesses have a role to give back to the community and help those in need", said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.
