Supporting the Comox Valley Food Bank this Holiday Season

Supporting the Comox Valley Food Bank this Holiday Season 

CARSTAR Courtenay, Comox Valley’s premier collision repairer, donated a pallet of food valued at over $500 to its local food bank.

CARSTAR Courtenay owner Ryan Isherwood is no stranger to giving back. Thanks to the support of his staff and office coordinator Kristy Sulverthorn, the facility is able to raise funds annually for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, provide local veterans a free windshield treatment to make winter driving easier and support local fundraisers – all to give back to the community they work and live in.

“The only reason we can be in the position to make donations like this are because of all the hard work our employees put in every day, at both locations,” says Ryan Isherwood, owner, CARSTAR Courtenay and CARSTAR Duncan. “Supporting causes like the Comox Valley Food Bank are important to us because it helps us spread the joy during this cheery season and ensures it’s a happy holiday for everyone in the Comox Valley area.”

The Comox Valley Food Bank distributes free supplementary food to people in need. As a non-profit organization committed to reducing hunger since 1983, the Comox Valley Food Bank gathers food and cash donations to support food distribution and collection programs. Reaching a wide range of urban and rural populations in the Comox Valley, from Oyster River in the North to Cook Creek in the South, including Hornby and Denman Island residents, the food bank is helping a record number of clients accessing its services.
