After just over an hour, the team completed over 400 bags!2013-08-01_salvation-army-bcca-volunteersThe Association sends their sincere thanks to Dr. Michael Vipond, Sharon Vipond, Dr. Jen Chen, Dr. Colin McKay, Claudia McKay, Kieran McKay, Dr. Margaret Wallace, Dr. Don Nixdorf and Michelle Da Roza for their help with this partnership.Going forward into 2013, our goal is to establish similar events throughout the province so that doctors in other communities can take part.
