Thank you to the Richmond Cosom Floor Hockey Association (RCFHA) for their generous donation of $300 to help our neighbours in need.

The RCFHA held a 50/50 draw during their season-ending playoffs on Sunday 1 March 2015 and donated their part of the 50/50.  They also collected two boxes of non-perishable food donations from their players and the spectators!

Thank you also to the winner of the 50/50 draw, Mike Martin, for donating his winnings to the Richmond Food Bank.  Mike told Alex Nixon, RFB Outreach Coordinator, that he was inspired by how the Richmond Food Bank provides healthy, nutritious groceries for more than 1400 people in a typical week.

Thank you Richmond Cosom Floor Hockey Association, the RCFHA Executive, RCFHA Players & Coaches, and Mike Martin for your donations!

We’re so grateful for the support of our community, including monetary donations, non-perishable food donations, and volunteering.  We rely on businesses, organizations, and individuals to help our neighbours in need, as we are a registered charity that is not government-funded.
