6th Annual REEL Thanksgiving Food Drive

It’s back! The REEL Thanksgiving Challenge returns for its sixth year! The two-week fund and food-raising challenge was initiated by the BC film industry to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Last year productions and partner businesses raised $207,787.73 and hope to raise more this year in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank!
