Morningside Rotary Club donates state of the art slicer to Kelowna Gospel Mission

A broken slicer could have put a serious damper on Christmas dinner at the Kelowna Gospel Mission, but the Morningside Rotary Club stepped up to save the day.

Not only will the generous donation help save Christmas dinner, but it allows the Gospel Mission to continue serving 600 meals a day for people in need.

“Christmas is coming and our old faithful slicer was faithful no more - it was on it’s last legs for years but finally broke down with sparks flying,” explained kitchen manager Mandy Phillips. “With our Christmas banquet fast approaching I didn’t know how we would hand slice over 1,000 slices of ham.”

“When Morningside Rotary Club heard of our need they came to our rescue once again. They are our Christmas angels.”

Morningside Rotary Club’s Development Director, Mike Morrison, said that making the donation was a no brainer.

“Our Rotary Club is always looking for ways to help our community and didn’t hesitate to purchase the slicer the shelter needed,” he said. “We are here to serve our community and want to make sure the Mission is well equipped for the incredible amount of meals they provide to people in need.”
