Paragon Testing Enterprises, developer and administrator of the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP), and the Canadian Academic English Language Test Computer Edition (CAEL CE), is starting a donation campaign to contribute to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank this holiday season. The Greater Vancouver Food Bank provides assistance to approximately 8,500 people weekly across Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, and the North Shore. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank has seen a 20% increase in new clients, 80% of whom have cited COVID-19 as the reason for their visit.
Thank you in advance for your contribution! For every dollar raised, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank can use its buying power to purchase $3 worth of healthy, nutritious food for those in need. Paragon will match all donations up to $2,500. The campaign is open until December 31, 2020.
