Ambulance crews respond to food drive

When the call goes out, the ambulance crews respond. For years BC Ambulance Service, across the province, has been helping fill Christmas hampers. Port Renfrew paramedics, who mostly live outside the small hamlet, haven’t taken part very often in these yearly food drives but they are all on board to support the Sooke Food Bank.

Acting Unit Chief Tim Fletcher said he read about the lack of donations from Port Renfrew and wanted to do something.

“We’ve got a box out and I e-mailed our whole staff of 14 people. We’ll have it out for a couple of weeks to see what happens. We will fill this thing up and drop it off,” said Fletcher.

“Just because we’re out of the way doesn’t mean we can’t help.”
