The Force was Strong at the My Tech Guys “The Last Jedi” Food Bank and Kus-Kus-Sum Fundraiser Sunday the 17th. Well over 100 people attended the private showing of the latest Star Wars installment. “After the success of the last two years fundraiser for The Food Bank and You Are Not Alone (YANA), the staff voted unanimously to host another private showing for My Tech Guys VIPs (family, friends, and customers). “Obviously, as geeks, the staff were already going to go see the movie, but having our own private viewing means we can all dress up and watch the show with people we know,” says Bob Wells, owner and The Extreme Geek at My Tech Guys.
“The staff also voted to raise funds and get donations for the Comox Valley Food Bank and the Kus-kus-sum project, a project to restore the old Sawmill Site on the Dyke Road to greenspace. We were able to raise $120 for the Kus-kus-sum and fill 6 Rubbermaid tubs with food right before Christmas. It’s always great to provide a great experience for our families, our friends and the great customers that support us year-round while supporting worthwhile organizations” says Brian Bailey, Regional Manager, and The Climbing Geek.
The Comox Valley Food Bank distributes free emergency food to people in need. As a non-profit organization committed to reducing hunger since 1983, the CVFB gathers food and cash donations to support food distribution and collection programs.
As part of our Estuary Stewardship, Project Watershed has committed to the restoration of the Field Sawmill site. We have been given a name for the site by the K’ómoks First Nation and are now calling it Kus-kus-sum. Our vision is to create vibrant and productive habitat and connect it to Hollyhock flats, which is adjacent to the site and one of the most productive areas in the Estuary. It’s a big job and it’s going to take a lot of work, we hope you will join us in creating this legacyCaila Vorster
Everyone has done an amazing job this year of dropping off donations. We would sincerely like to thank everyone who has donated in the past and continues to donate into the future. We prefer cash donations so we can shop the deals, buy fresh produce and fill existing gaps but we welcome anything you wish to give!Jeff Hampton
