We want to thank EVERYONE who rallied to support the Abbotsford Food Bank through the Give It Up for Hunger Event! We had two great events happening during the week of May 5th - 9th, the Team Challenge and the Online Auction. We had teams creatively raising funds through BBQ’s, candy counts, bake sales and more. The exciting Online Auction was full of great prizes, from Westjet flights to lawn mows. The Give it up for Hunger Event grand total raised was $10,800.
Last month we held the 'Give it Up Team Challenge' as a component of our 'Give it Up for Hunger Event'. We challenged local businesses to compete to see who could raise the most money for us here at the Food Bank. Yet again we were so impressed with our incredible supporters! This year we had 10 teams participating with a huge variety of efforts to raise money – including silent auctions, luncheons, BBQs, potlucks and % of sales promotions!
