October Charity Drive and Raffle Winners
Our October charity drive just wrapped up tonight. While this is one of the most subdued strange Halloween years we remember, we’re so so grateful to so many of you sending in donations and dropping off cans in support of our Thanks-for-Giving charity drive.
Our goal was to raise $1000 in donations, and we’re so happy to write that we exceeded it with a total of $1336 raised (along with 191 cans). The total will be equally distributed to the Daily Food Bank and Burlington Food Banks (with all of the cans being dropped off in Burlington). This is a hard time for so many of our fellow Canadians – as some of you guys know from our ongoing Speaking Moistly charity drive, we have a special bond to food banks and they really need everyone’s help now more than ever. We’re humbled by so many of you contributing!
We’ll be donating to local food banks in December prior to Christmas and invite you to contribute to your local food bank – they prefer money donations as they can allocate them best for most needed items – every bit helps!
The 2 lucky winners of tonight’s $300 gift certificate raffle are Mark via ticket #1750703 and Sarah via #1750590. Both have been notified and we look forward to contributing to their (or anyone they gift the certificate to) work in the near future!
Thank you again all, you are loved!
