Abbotsford’s Kevin Eustace has been named recipient of Envision Financial’s the Full Cupboard Volunteer Education Award for 2015.

The program consists of two $2,500 awards for secondary and post-secondary students who demonstrate outstanding community volunteerism with their local food banks.

Eustace is one of this year’s two winners. He will attend the University of the Fraser Valley and pursue a diploma in social work and liberal arts.

He dedicated more than 50 volunteer hours at the Abbotsford Food Bank, including the management of client intake, food distribution and organization and sorting of donations.

The Full Cupboard is a community program launched in 2013 by First West Credit Union’s Envision Financial division.

It aims to raise food, funds and awareness for food banks in the communities where Envision Financial operates.

The award, established in 2013, has provided $15,000 in education award funding to help six students from across B.C. finance their education.
