I'm super happy to kick off our 15th Annual Genome BC Food Drive!
Since we began this 15 years ago, we have raised a total of $31,715 and 28 boxes of food for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. This success has only been possible because we have pulled together as a team to make it happen and I couldn't be more proud of us!
This year we have an extra special incentive to open our wallets. As mentioned at our staff meeting, Genome BC has generously committed to match our donations up to $6,000 - AMAZING! The Genome BC matching portion will be donated to the BC Food Bank which will allow us to spread out our donations across the province. This is absolutely amazing and I am so thankful for this extra boost from Genome BC and to all of you for your generosity :)
Remember that cash donations to the Food Bank are valued at 3x the purchasing power per dollar. With Genome BC's matching donation it would mean 6x times the purchasing power!
Our grand total raised will be revealed at the December 16th Team Meeting.
Thank you all in advance! - let's do this!
*The GVFBS will issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more.
