We are all dealing with the challenges presented by COVID-19 in some way. However, a growing number of our fellow citizens are in truly precarious positions. As a firm, we are doing what we can to support front lines organizations that are helping our most vulnerable populations. While it is uncertain how long the new reality will continue, it is clear that the economic impact of this health crisis is going to cause a significant increase in the need for resources provided by our food banks and social assistance organizations in the coming weeks and months.
We wanted to take a moment to invite those of you who have the means, to join us in making sure that organizations providing front line services continue to have the resources necessary to operate effectively.
Foodbanks, as you may or may not know, have bulk purchasing power ($1 dollar donated, provides $3 in purchasing power). They are also set up to adhere to provincial health protocols that make sure food is distributed to those in need safely.
If you are in a position to contribute, we encourage to join us in helping our community get through this difficult time.
