We want to thank all who were able to join us on November 8th in support of the Veteran’s Food Bank & Calgary Poppy Fund. We had an overwhelming response from attendees and those who donated but could not make the event. With everyone’s help, we raised $3295 and enough food to fill an SUV in support of the Veterans. We were so glad to be able to assist such a worthwhile cause.
A special thank you goes out to Heirs Pears for providing the space, coffee and snacks and to the Hilton Garden Inn for providing a generous prize for the guests.
Update from the Veteran’s Food Bank
The Veteran’s Food Bank was in need as they faced empty shelves in October with more veterans than ever utilizing the Food Bank. Due to generous Calgarians, they were able to have their most successful campaign to date. Over 400,000 pounds of food and $158,000 were donated. We were happy to be able to assist in this great success.
