How to Support the Calgary Food Bank this Holiday

Posted by Kirby Cox on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 at 3:48pm.

We are proud to support the Calgary Food Bank every year, and during the holiday season, there is especially a need for help. If you're looking for a non-profit to support this time of year, consider them.

Some quick facts about the Calgary Food Bank:

  • Every day, between 80 and 100 people volunteer at the Food Bank
  • Last year, almost 4,400 individual and group volunteers supported the Food Bank: 112,300 hours of time to help feed hungry Calgarians

You can help by donating food, volunteer hours or money. Information is available on their website here.

You can also attend one of the upcoming events:

• Gift wrapping centre:
Monday, December 10, 2012 - 1:00pm to Friday, December 21, 2012 - 3:00pm
It’s hard enough finding the time to shop for gifts, let alone getting them wrapped in time for the holidays - but not to worry, we’re here to help!
• Dough on the go:
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 - 7:00am to 8:30am
Take a break from your morning commute and join CBC Calgary’s Angela Knight and members of the CBC Do Crew at the Sundance Petro-Canada station. Meet the gang and make your donation to this year’s CBC Calgary Suncor Energy Food Bank Drive!On-line donations
