THE TERRACE Churches Food Bank received a whopping 900 pounds of food items and $500 from the Skeena Valley Farmers Market craft show.

The market held its very successful craft show at the Sportsplex Saturday November 24.

Optional admission to the craft show was a non-perishable food item.

More than 900 lbs of food were received during the six-and-a-half-hour sale.

The $500 donation came from raffle ticket proceeds and the prizes were three separate basketsĀ  of vendors' handmade gifts.

The lucky winners were: R. Keswick, K. Helie and N. Reidy of Terrace.

The Skeena Valley Farmers Market is open from early May until late October every Saturday 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
