Pacific FC and Dood’s Furniture and Mattress will be giving back to The Mustard Seed and the Goldstream Food Bank in a campaign called Feed the Isle.

Food donations are being accepted at the Pacific FC Store on Fort Street as well as at Dodd’s Furniture and Mattress on Finlayson Street.

This is Pacific FC’s opportunity to give back and partner with one of the best known philanthropists on the Island.”

On the Oct. 2 game day, Dodd’s Furniture and Mattress will also provide a truck for walk-up donations.
