We send our best to ‘Stuff A Bus’ for charity – Helping more local children have a Christmas dinner

Posted by | News, Staff Features | No Comments

1,200 children will be receiving meals this Christmas thanks to the efforts of iheartradio’s Stuff A Bus event.

$450,000 worth of food and donations were gathered in 2 days as the Central Okanagan pooled their efforts. Our team was also there to support the cause. Troika’s construction team CorWest put forth their best and pitched in on the 600 turkeys.

“A little food, a little cash, a little love for those that need a little help.”

“Mike and I had an opportunity to represent all the staff in the TRIBE by stuffing the bus on Saturday…” said Ray Wynsouw CHP. “We at CorWest Builders and Troika Developments are passionate about building communities. We are equally as passionate about helping those in the community.”

Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran’s ‘One Bag Challenge’

Posted by | News | No Comments

Our very own Renee Wasylyk was nominated by Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran for the One Bag Challenge. Not familiar? Read about it and watch his original video here. The One Bag Challenge is a twist on the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, where Kelowna locals are challenged to bring a full bag of food to the Greater Okanagan Food Bank during the month of July, when their supplies are at their lowest. 

Renee graciously accepted, and nominated five more people. See who she nominated by watching the video here.

But the fun didn’t end there.

Within 24 hours, Renee received two more nominations: from Kelowna – Lake Country MLA, Norm Letnick, and Kelowna City Manager, Ron Matiussi.

She decided to take the One Bag Challenge to the next level. See what she did here.

In just 10 days, the Greater Okanagan food bank collected 24,000. Congratulations and thank you to everybody that participated!
