Our 2017 Food Drive in Burlington (Ontario) ended last week. This year, we helped the FOOD4KIDS organization in accomplishing its mission of providing food to hungry children of Hamilton and Halton.
We raised $814.85 in cash from the various raffles/donations and jeans & jersey day, $100 worth of grocery gift cards donated by an anonymous person and 158 pounds of food. It may not sound like much, but it was five bins of needed items from their wish list including cereal, crackers & granola bars which are very light. It all filled the cargo area of the organizer’s van!
