Hello Genome BC Team
In this uncertain and trying time we find ourselves in due to COVID-19, we have decided to hold a virtual Food Drive for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS) on Wednesday, April 1st at our Staff Meeting.
We have been quite successful in the past 14 years in donating a number of boxes of food and cash donations during the holiday season. Last year alone we raised $9320 in cash and 2 full boxes of food! This success has only been possible because we have pulled together as a team to make it happen!
Remember that cash donations to the Food Bank are valued at 3x the purchasing power per dollar. The GVFBS will issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more. Please keep in mind that this is an online only virtual food drive and we cannot except cheques or physical food donations at this time due to COVID-19.
Looking forward to displaying our values in coming together as a GBC community.
