LETTERS: Generosity abounds

Letter writers give thanks.

Editor:

A huge bouquet of thanks to the Royal Canadian Legion’s White Rock branch and Mackarino’s Kitchen who organized and hosted a huge fundraiser for the “Five Corners” Fire Victims on June 19.

The organizers and volunteers went into the community and received donations of services, products, door prizes and food.

Hundreds of people attended, and were very generous in contributing funds for the victims. They played pool and other games, feasted on a fabulous buffet dinner, and enjoyed live entertainment by Two of a Kind, who also donated their services.

A huge thanks to all the sponsors!

Also, thanks to all who attended and supported this successful event.

It shows that the community and individuals really do care!

St. John’s Presbyterian Church wants to thank White Rock Supermarket on Russell Street for their generosity!

Last month the store brought 10 boxes of fruit and vegetables to the Lunch Hut to give to the homeless and poor in our community.

This overwhelming gift was appreciated greatly! The store gives us weekly donations also.

Sheila Jakus, White Rock
