We are coming into the time of year when we think about our wonderful clients and how much we appreciate them.
I saw on the news in October how the Calgary Food Bank is preparing for an overwhelming demand for food hampers in November and December.
A great number of families using the Food Bank have been those affected by the June floods. In September, 400 families arrived for hampers. The average is usually 200.
Even though my family was not directly affected by the flood, we are very aware of how devastating it was for many families.
Keeping this in mind, we have decided to use the funds we allocate during Christmas for client appreciation, cards, postage, and gifts etc. to purchase as much food as possible to fill as many hampers as we can.
During our Food Bank Drive we were able to accumulate over 400 pounds of food!
We thank you for your continued support and we wish you all the best for the coming year!
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
