Surrey Food Bank handed a Christmas miracle

SURREY (NEWS1130) – The warmth of the Christmas season is alive and well in Surrey.

The Surrey Food Bank was in a jam earlier this week because the nasty weather prevented crews from getting to local schools where students had been collecting donations.

Marilyn Hermann with the food bank says a Christmas miracle came in the form of Kary Movers, who stepped in with a couple of trucks and some workers. “They went to small schools, small businesses, and big schools. Trucking all that food and boxes through the snow, you can imagine was a huge feat.”

Hermann says a couple of trucks got the job done. “A 3-ton and a 5-ton. They said ‘we’ll devote our guys for the whole week, for you.'”

Hermann says the movers managed to collect all donations. She calls it a “godsend.”

humbug John. This company came through and you found a way to discredit them. Sad.
I don’t know them, never heard of them before but kudo’s to them. I’m sure the guys got paid from the company for those hours they worked or maybe they did donate their time. (which means they didn’t get paid elsewhere while doing this) And lets not forget the cost of the gas to drive around to all this locations!
In todays world, it’s nice to hear a story like this. If they do get some free publicity by doing this, even better. I would prefer to hire them then a big company who is all about the almight dollar.

think maybe a dictionary is the perfect Xmas gift for some people. the man hours are a donation at best, and free publicity.
