Help us win $20,000!

Help us win $20,000!

By Vivian in Donation on June 10, 2023

Summer in Canada brings many wonderful things like beautiful weather and the chance to enjoy the outdoors more often. However, for many Canadian Food Banks (and other charitable organizations), donations tend to drop in summertime as compared to the winter months.

To help save charities coast-to-coast from the summer-giving drought, CanadaHelps has launched their Great Canadian Giving Challenge for the eighth year in a row.

In June, every $1 donated to the Richmond Food Bank via our CanadaHelps page automatically enters us to win an additional $20,000 donation. The grand prize draw is on Canada Day and one lucky charity will receive the grand prize of $20,000.

Did you know that for every $1 we receive, we can give out about $7 worth of food? Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we provide assistance to about 2,200 people per week and we are seeing this number increase as food prices rise. 

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

  • Every $1 donated IN JUNE is an automatic entry for your charity of choice to win (minimum $3 donation required)
  • Challenge begins June 1, 2023 at midnight Newfoundland Daylight Time (NDT) and ends on June 30, 2023 at 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
  • Grand prize draw is on CANADA DAY, July 1, 2023 – $20,000 will be donated to the winning charity
  • Only donations made on or through the website will be entered for the prize draw
