RE/MAX making their food bank drive more personal

People asked to collect non-perishable foods in bags found in the Cariboo Connector

RE/MAX is switching up their food drive this year.

“We’re just doing it differently, last year we did a Christmas movie and then people dropped off food as admission,” said David Jurek, owner of 100 Mile House’s RE/MAX and organizer of the drive.

People will find a paper bag in the Cariboo Connector section of the Free Press and are asked to fill it with non-perishables which would then go to the food bank.

“We’re just asking people to either fill them up with something from home that they are wanting to pass on or bring it to one of their favourite grocery stores and fill it up,” said Jurek.

Jurek and the RE/MAX team will be sitting outside of Safe-On-Foods from 10 to 4 on Dec. 15 and 16. Participants can also drop them off at the office at any time.

“Just wanted to be out there at the grocery store meeting people, having a good time,” said Jurek, saying he wanted to make the food drive a little more personal.

In addition to the food drive, RE/MAX will be holding their free matinee movie night on Dec. 10, where they will be showing Shrek the Halls at 2 p.m at the South Cariboo Theatre.

Free Press publisher Martina Dopf says she’s happy to be partnering with RE/MAX on this and hopefully delivering a better Christmas.
