After a successful launch in April 2017 of Starfish Pack program, Penticton Rotary is back at it again for a 3rd year! Starfish pack is a program which provides backpacks of food to local school aged children and their families on the weekends. The backpacks are packed with food with support from Save-On foods. The packs are then delivered to local pre-selected schools. They are distributed by the principal to children on Friday and returned empty on Monday for the process to begin again. The backpacks contain food to supplement meals for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and some snacks.
Penticton Rotary Club are selling tickets for their upcoming fundraiser on Thursday, November 22nd to raise money for the Penticton Starfish Pack Program. Tickets available for purchase until November 18th. See poster below for details!
