Two Kamloops businesses are teaming up to help collect much-needed items for the local chapter of the BC SPCA.
Eat Clean Kamloops — a restaurant in the Landmark development on McGill Road, across from Thompson Rivers University — and River City Limo are hosting the first Fill the Limo charity drive.
It will take place under COVID-19 protocols on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot next to the new Nursing Building at TRU. Access is via the East Gate entrance, at McGill and University drives.
The public is urged to attend and bring an item or two that is needed by the SPCA.
Such items include dog and cat toys, Kongs and pet puzzles, pate-style wet canned food for cats and dogs, dry food for cats and dogs, dog dental or soft treats, cat treats, Yesterday News cat litter, pine or paper shavings for small animals and chew toys for small animals.
The SPCA could also use cleaning supplies, including high-efficiency laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, Kleenex, large and extra-large garbage bags, kitchen garbage bags (tall size), dish soap and dishwasher detergent and sandwich and freezer bags.
In addition, printer paper, Scotch and packing tape, white board markers and permanent markers can also be donated.
Staff from the Kamloops SPCA, Eat Clean Kamloops and Eat Clean Kamloops will be there to hand out water and offer giveaways and coupons to the restaurant for everyone who donates.
In addition, staff from 5 Bean Brew Bar will be there with coffee and River City Limo will hold a draw, with the winner receiving a two-hour limo ride.
