Thank You Peterson!

Thank You Peterson!

By Hajira Hussain in Donation on March 18, 2019

We are very grateful to Peterson for their generous donation of $10 000!

This is the third year in a row that Peterson has held a matching donation drive (up to $10,000).  The first year’s drive raised more than $6500 (plus Peterson’s matching donation).  More than $11 000 was donated through the campaign last year.

This year, the campaign raised a total of $16,235 from 58 donors. It was a significant boost to our overall donations, and we are so grateful to Peterson as well as to all of our individual donors for their generosity.

Thank you, Peterson Group, for your leadership in rallying the community to help our neighbours in need. We rely on the support of local businesses, faith communities, schools, organizations, and individual donors. We serve about 2,200 people each week through our various programs, and the donations we receive will help us purchase items including milk, fresh fruits and vegetables, and breakfast and lunch items for our school meals program.
