West Shore mall collecting food for food bank

Westshore Town Centre in Langford is competing against other Bentall Kennedy malls across Canada to raise money for local food banks

Westshore Town Centre in Langford is competing against other Bentall Kennedy malls across Canada to raise money for local food banks, in this case, the Goldstream Food Bank.

The winner will be assessed by the most food and funds collected over the next eight months.

Winners will be given one of five $10,000 grants to be donated to the winner’s local partner food bank, in addition to all the funds and food collected at each centre.

“We’ve gone up against some much larger sites in other national competitions and won, so we’re confident that we can win that extra money for the Goldstream Food Bank,” said Laura Poland, Westshore mall manager.

Westshore’s first fundraising initiative is to ride the El Paso Express train from March 15 to 18. All proceeds to the food bank.
