The Oliver Fire Department and Women of Oliver for Women (WOW) have donated to the new Starfish program to help feed hungry kids in the community.
WOW recently donated $1,500 to the cause, noting that some children go to school hungry for many reasons and may not have sufficient food over the weekend.
The Oliver Starfish program, coordinated by Sam Marsel, provides three meals and snacks per day to last the weekend.
Because WOW’s mission statement is to “enrich the lives of women and children in our community and beyond,” this is the perfect program to support.
The Oliver fire department donated $2,000 from its recent drive-thru breakfast.
