Oilfields Food Bank Thanks Community for Generosity

Food Bank donations 2015A very successful community food drive by the local fire departments of Turner Valley, Black Diamond & Longview took place in early December. A HUGE THANK YOU to all the firemen/women, the food bank volunteers & the Scouts for their hard work unloading the food. Many hands sorted the donations & filled our storage rooms right up. You’re awesome!
