It’s Giving Tuesday!

It’s Giving Tuesday!

By Vivian in Donation on November 28, 2023

As we gear up for the season of gratitude and generosity, there’s no better way to kick off the giving spirit than by participating in Giving Tuesday. Every year, Giving Tuesday falls on the Tuesday following the US Thanksgiving and as the name implies, it is a day for giving back in whatever way possible.

This year, we are asking for your support as the need for food assistance becomes greater than ever. The demand for our services has grown, and your support allows us to provide essential nourishment to those who are struggling.

There are many ways you can help make a difference this Giving Tuesday and all throughout the holiday season:

  • Make a monetary donation. Monetary donations allow us purchase our most needed items. For every $1 donated, we are able to provide $7 worth of food to our neighbours in need.
  • Start your own fundraiser. Hosting a Virtual Food Drive or Holiday Food Drive is a great way to get your friends, family, and coworkers involved!
  • Volunteer your time. Your time and energy can make a direct and positive impact on the lives of our neighbours.
  • Spread the word. Whether through social media or other means, your advocacy can inspire others to join in and contribute, amplifying the impact we can make together.

With your help, we are able to serve over 2,800 families in need each week. Your support, whether big or small, means the world to us. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for helping us build a community where no one is hungry!
