2011 Holiday Grocery
I’m so pleased to let you know that our Holiday grocery event was a huge success!
On Tuesday December 13th, we handed out over 750 bags of food! It’s always amazing to me how we can pull this off in 1 day! It takes a lot of work and preparation and of course there is no way that we could do it without the help of so many in the community.
It warmed my heart indeed to see just how many people and companies came out and gave their gifts of involvement, thank you so much to everyone that was involved (all 51 of you!!!). Between setting up for the event and the actual day itself, all of the volunteers helped out in their special ways. Truly amazing to watch it all come together!
I would like to say a special thank you to the following companies for sending over some dedicated employees to help out:
- Laurie and her team at Polycom Canada
- Sally, Laurie and team of Starbucks folks from store #4633
- Brad and his team at Maxxam Analytics
Clients, staff and volunteers look forward to this event all year and with your help, we were able to have a lovely day of sharing where the value is above anything we could count. Again, from the bottom of my heart a huge thank you to all that came and gave of yourselves to make this a warming and wonderful event!
All the best for 2012,
