The Light Up Okotoks Festival Kicks Off The Christmas Season In Fine Fashion

We parked the trailer and set our table up at 4:30PM, just in time as the road was closed to traffic at the stroke of 5. It didn’t take long before the stream of people started showing up at our spot food donations in hand. We had pre-packaged hampers for those who forgot to bring a donation or just wanted to stop buy and purchase one.

Once again the spirit of this community lit up the night. The steady stream of food and cash donations lasted until the Fire Works display at 9PM. We left the Okotoks Food Bank with 13 full food collection boxes and a nice sum of cash.

Thank you to Sheila and your wonderful volunteers for helping out. A huge thank you to the Rosenau Transport volunteers for giving up their Friday night to make this event one big party!!!!
