Thrifty Foods orange sales rack up donations for hospitals

Buck brand raises 84,000 bucks for health charities

Thrifty Foods’ month-long Help Out One Buck at a Time campaign raised $84,742 for hospital foundations.

Between Feb. 15 and March 13, one dollar from the purchase of every four-pound bag of Buck Brand navel oranges at the grocery chain went to support 13 hospital foundations on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

Included in the total was a $20,000 donation from Buck Brand Citrus owner Lisle Babcock.
