Drivers heading through Langley City may notice some Christmas characters standing at the side of 200 Street at the United Church.
Justin Hosain, Shayla Dussalt-Jensen and Carrie Belanger are holding signs inviting the public to come in to the Sources Food Bank to enjoy refreshments, music and good cheer.
The event is being put on as a thank you to the community for their ongoing support, and to commemorate the community’s generous response when the food bank’s truck was stolen one year ago.
On Dec. 10, 2015, someone took $1,000 in gift cards from Sources, and the next day, their one-tonne truck used for picking up donations was stolen as well.
Today’s appreciation event is on until 2 p.m. Donations are being accepted, but are not required.
Westminster Savings is also on site collecting donations for residents impacted by the Paddington Station fire.
Sources Langley is located at 5673 200 St. at the United Church.
