Three-year-old Jace and six-year-old Cael gathered all the pennies out of their piggy bank and brought it over the the Sooke News Mirror office for the food bank. A donation box has been set up at the SNM office, located at 4-6631 Sooke Road.


If you can help others, the Sooke Christmas Bureau is still out fundraising for the Sooke Food Bank at local grocery stores. They are hoping to gather $25,000 in donations to feed the needy through their hamper program in Sooke and area.
