The Terrace Church’s Food Bank won first place in a B.C.-wide photo contest celebrating National Volunteer Week earlier this year.
Awarded on May 29, the prize-winning picture was taken by Matt Kawei of Eye4nature Photography, a photo of a young Terrace girl donating her birthday money to the food bank.
Volunteer BC sponsored the photo contest and the top three winners will be used in Volunteer BC’s marketing materials.

“Our photo contest is a great way to celebrate volunteerism, thank and recognize volunteers and shine a spotlight on the many individuals that contribute in many different ways in the province,” said Lawrie Portigal, president of Volunteer BC, in a press release.
“We are pleased to have received such a large number of photo entries that illustrate the immense pride that British Columbians have in their communities and for their volunteers.”
