Cove merchants will come together Dec. 1 to show their love for those in need. Local Love is a cash-not-cans fundraising drive for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, held in conjunction with a Gallant Avenue-wide holiday open house.
Participating merchants signed up so far include Seymour Art Gallery, Room6, Cafe Orso, LaLa’s, Bluhouse, Covert Cafe, A’hoy, Paper Label and Pomegranate. Each participating business will put out a collection box from the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, along with beverages and snacks. Some businesses will be offering a 10 per cent discount during the family friendly event.
Organizers are encouraging community members to stroll through the Cove and pop by the shops with food donations.
Local Love is being held Friday, Dec. 1 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Pictured are Lisa Evans (A’hoy), Katrina Schigas and Megan Curren (Room6) Teresa Lake and Nicole Ninow (The Sh( )p by Paper Label) and Jen McCarthy (Bluhouse Café).
