Help us win $10,000!

By Hajira Hussain in Donation on June 10, 2019

Summer is such a wonderful time in Canada – great weather and longer days mean more fun outdoor activities, weekends away, BBQs and much more. However, for many Canadian Food Banks (and other charitable organizations), donations tend to drop off in summertime as compared to the winter months. To help save charities coast-to-coast from the summer-giving drought, CanadaHelps and The GIV3 Foundation have launched the fourth annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge.

In June, every $1 donated to the Richmond Food Bank via our CanadaHelps page automatically enters us to win an additional $10,000 donation. The grand prize draw is on Canada Day and one lucky charity will receive the grand prize of $10,000.

What would the Richmond Food Bank do with an extra $10,000? Did you know that for every $1 we receive, we can give out about $6 worth of food? Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we provide assistance to about 2,200 people per week, and distribute about 20,000 lbs of food / week.

Please help us spread the word, and consider making your online donation through our CanadaHelps page today! Thank you for your support!
