North Okanagan students collect food for families in need

Instead of spending their day shopping Black Friday deals, some local teens took the time to give back to those in need.

Clarence Fulton Secondary students braved the wind and cold Thursday, Nov. 27 to collect cash and cans (non-perishables) outside of the Okanagan Landing Plaza.
