San Pedro Food Bank thanks Crazy Canuck’s for substantial donation
Friday, June 24th, 2016
The San Pedro Food Bank (SPFB) extends their gratitude to Crazy Canuck’s Beach Bar for donating over $10,000 that directly benefited dozens of local families in need here on the island. Every Tuesday, Crazy Canucks hosts hermit crab races, and 25% of the raised funds are donated to the San Pedro Food Bank and Daryl’s Kids of Belize.
According to Brittney O’Daniel of the SPFB, the food bank costs about $1,000 a week to run, and the donations assist with the costs of perishable items. “Every week for the past year, the food bank gets anywhere from $150-300 a week. It’s the only consistent weekly money we get so it’s really helpful. Last week, they hit the 10k mark over the last year, and we would like to express our sincere thanks to Crazy Canucks,” said O’Daniel.
Rob Burrows, owner of Crazy Canucks, explained how he carefully selects which charities he donates to. “I was encouraged by Brittney and how she runs the food bank. It’s families in need, and she helps to maintain them. We will always support her and this good cause,” said Burrows.
Kudos to Crazy Canucks for their big donation! Crazy Canucks is located south of town at Exotic Caye Resort, and the public is invited to participate in their crab races held every Tuesday at 6PM with live music. It’s a really fun evening activity!
