Hi CST Team!
In the spirit of the holidays, Shaina Reid has organized a CST Virtual Food Drive in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB). Monetary contributions fund the important work of the GVFB and the hardworking team that operates it to ensure healthy, fresh food reaches its many clients in need. Participation is of course optional and we encourage everyone to find ways to give back this season.
If you would like to participate: Between now and Christmas (Dec. 25), support our campaign by clicking on the 'donate' button at the top right. You will have a virtual shopping experience that lets you select nutritious foods for GVFB clients for the $$ amount of your choosing. Youre welcome to add your name to your donation or donate anonymously.
With every donation made, you will help us reach our goal of $5,000! Together we can do it!
Remember that for every $1 donated, the GVFB can double the value because of its buying power and strong relationships with farmers and retailers.
How the GVFB helps our community:
- Provides assistance to approximately 8,500 people weekly across Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, and the North Shore
- Provides food support to approximately 80 community agencies, such as housing agencies, women and childrens shelters and after school programs
- Of all the GVFBs clients, 24%are children and youth
Thank you for taking part in CST's Virtual Food Drive, and thank you to Shaina for starting this initiative!
