Kama Bosma -Treasurer

Kama has been an avid volunteer at the Wood Buffalo Food Bank, having helped out with several Food Drives over the years. She recently joined the WBFB board of directors in October 2016. Helping with the food drives opened Kama’s eyes to how much the food bank is needed and how it helps so many people in our community. She enjoys all of the volunteers that she meets when working at the food drives, and loves that entire families come out and help at the different locations. Kama is heart-warmed with how many people now donate and give back to the WBFB because of how they were assisted in their time of need. She is proud that she is a part of an organization that does so much for our community. “Treat people the way that you would want to be treated.”


Dennine Giles - Director

Dennine’s commitment to the concept of the Food Bank could be traced to her father, who started an independent food bank in his garage 45 years ago and has kept it operating ever since. Denine, owner of the successful NorthStar Ford automotive dealership, has always been involved in the community, supporting all organizations that pertain to children and those that may be down on their luck. The mother of two children and staunch community advocate believes the Wood Buffalo Food Bank is an incredibly worthwhile cause that has a direct and positive impact on the clients it serves.

Brad Lucier – Director

Brad is the President of HVAC Solutions in Fort McMurray, having started the company 11 years ago. The father of two and grandfather of one, Brad is an avid golfer and has been involved with Ski Patrol and the Ski Team in the past. Brad believes involvement in the Wood Buffalo Food Bank is an opportunity to contribute to making the community a better place to live, and a key component of the obligation business owners have to give back to the community. He has served on the WBFB board for over a year, which has given him a deeper sense of community. Brad has two rules in life; 1. Don’t sweat the small stuff, 2. It’s all small stuff.
