ON SATURDAY, OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD was speckled with yellow all over: bags of food donations for the Foodbank. To say that the Kamloops community gave generously would be an understatement: 70,000 pounds of food, which should be ensuring the supply for the next six months, according to their Facebook page. Thank you to everyone who did not forget to stuff the yellow bags and big thanks to the volunteers who collected it all!
Since physical distancing has been instituted, we have been learning new ways of keeping our heads above the water. It’s a whole new lifestyle, right? But the one thing that stands out time and time again is that no one can do it on their own. We’re leaning on each other to make good things happen (see my previous column featuring the Caremongering movement and the associated N2N website, both volunteer-run.)
