Pumpkins for Patients Record Year

Thrifty Foods annual ‘Pumpkins for Patients’ drive raised $2,000 for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation. This was the most successful year of the campaign so far!

Store Manager, Doug Riederer is thrilled with the result, saying "Thrifty Foods Campbell River was very happy to support our local Hospital Foundation through our Pumpkins for Patients campaign again this year. We would like to thank our customers for their continued support which allows us to give back to this great community through this and other campaigns throughout the year".

1 dollar from the sale of every pumpkin and 50 cents from the sale of every pumpkin pie from the bakery was donated during the month of October.

We are very grateful to Thrifty Foods for their ongoing support and to all those generous customers who picked up some extra pumpkins or treats to support our hospital, thank you!
