Fraser Valley REALTORS® donate $32,500 to local food banks

Pat yourself on the back, because thanks to you many struggling residents within our communities will receive desperately-needed food and support.

For the sixth time in our Board’s history, Fraser Valley Realtors have made a substantial donation to food banks throughout the region. As in previous years, the donation is divided proportionately based on the number of Realtors represented in each community:

  • $13,325 to the Surrey Food Bank
  • $6,500 to the Sources Langley Food Bank
  • $6,825 to Sources White Rock South Surrey Food Bank
  • $975 to the North Delta Chapter of the Surrey Food Bank
  • $3,900 to the Abbotsford Food Bank
  • $975 to St. Joseph’s Food Bank in Mission

“Fraser Valley Realtors are honoured to once again support local food banks and the incredible work they do for our communities,” said Charles Wiebe, President of the FVREB.

“Every day, these organizations provide critical assistance to families and individuals throughout the Fraser Valley. With this donation we hope to provide what help we can towards their efforts and the lives of those in their care.”

For the six years that Fraser Valley Realtors have supported local food banks, a total amount of $132,500 has been distributed throughout the region.

Rebecca Thuro, Communications Coordinator at the Abbotsford Food Bank, received the FVREB’s cheque on behalf of Abbotsford.

“Food bank use in British Columbia has never been higher, as thousands of residents continue to struggle with the growing cost of living in our province. With every dollar or item of food donated, someone in your community – a neighbour, friend, child or grandparent – gets to live a little easier. We’re grateful for this donation and the ongoing support of Fraser Valley Realtors.”

British Columbia’s food banks support over 100,000 people every year; please consider supporting the food bank organization in your community.
