Five-year-old Oliver clutches two jars full of coins which he brought in to give to the Sooke Food Bank. It was a family effort.
The Sooke News Mirror is accepting donations of non-perishable food and coins for the local food bank. Another places accepting cash and food is the Sooke bottle depot on Idlemore Road. Most of the grocery stores and drug stores have food donation boxes. Pet food can also be dropped off for the Sooke Animal Food and Rescue Society at grocery store locations.
