This year has been a rollercoaster. We feel very fortunate that we have been able to continue providing our clients with our quality services safely from our home offices throughout the COVID-19 pandemic this year.
We know that not everyone has been as fortunate as us to be able to work from home, or work at all.
This year, it is estimated that the amount of Ontarians accessing the Foodbank rose 7.3% from last year, for a total of 3,282,500 visits. (1)
I lieu of client presents this year, we have made a monetary donation to our local Foodbank to support the essential work they do to support our community. We encourage everyone, if they have the ability to do so, to please consider donating to your local Foodbank or charities to help those in need.
Please see below photos of our team with our donation baskets for the foodbank!
