A group of Kelowna teenagers has built and donated a Free Little Pantry to the Kelowna Women’s Shelter to be used by women and kids in need.
The Free Little Pantry is a shelving unit stocked with food and supplies for those who cannot afford it.
The teens- Alyssa, Ethan and Natalie- received a Youth Development and Engagement Grant to complete the project.
They built the unit in July and will be installing it at the Shelter this week.
On August 19th, the public is invited to a community BBQ at Jack Robinson Park to celebrate the completion of the Free Little Pantry. There will be food, games and a bouncy house. The event takes place from 1-4 p.m.
Donations will be accepted to help fill the pantry. Some items required include: baby formula, band-aids, body wash, canned fruit, canned vegetables, crackers, nuts, pasta, pasta sauce, deodorant, garbage bags and diapers.
Come enjoy the day and donate what you can- the women here so appreciate it!
And a HUGE thank you to Alyssa, Ethan and Natalie for your great idea and support. : )
