Cowichan Coffee Time: Sikh Temple pairs with CDH auxiliary

• With the help of some Cowichan District Hospital Auxiliary members, about 20 members of the Sikh Temple on Sherman Road warmed up the Temple kitchen over three days at the beginning of December as they produced 2,400 samosas for the Auxiliary to Cowichan District Hospital to sell to hospital staff.

The first day was devoted to preparing 300 pounds of potatoes, lots of carrots and 150 pounds of onions. Day two saw the dough being stuffed and shaped, and on the third day everything was cooked and sold.

Altogether, approximately 350 hours of work by these volunteers brought in $2,775 for the Auxiliary to have on hand for upcoming support requirements. The Auxiliary very much appreciates the support of the members of the Temple, said Bruce Wilkinson of the CDH Auxiliary.
