Grocery store praised for supporting community

Save-On Foods has been a generous sponsor of several projects.

Editor: Over the last several years, Save-On Foods in Langley (Willoughby) has been quietly and generously helping us, a local church, to help the community around us.

The store kindly sold us meat at a sale price so we could make a beautiful stew for about 400 Downtown Eastside homeless residents.

The store has helped make Christmas specil for local Langley residents through the Langley Christmas Bureau. Store employees assembled, packed and then delivered to our church the large hampers full of food that we requested. Once the hampers arrived, we delivered them to the Langley residents who were registered with the Christmas Bureau.

Save-On Foods is dedicated to their community. It is a business that has gone above and beyond, and it is much appreciated.

To all of you at Save-On Foods, we wish to say thank you, on behalf of Langley, our community and our church.
