Vernon health care assistant class collects food for Upper Room Mission

A former Okanagan College student is making a tradition out of giving back to his community.

Baljit Sandhu’s Health Care Assistant class started a food drive in 2017 for the Upper Room Mission.

Even though Sandhu has since graduated, his efforts continued this year with the HCA class of 2018-19.

“I am very happy to say that we have such great community that when we ask for help we stand together,” said Sandhu.

“It’s our privilege to give back to our community any way we can.”
