Heroes of Hope is a new initiative at the Food Bank that allows you to partner with us on an ongoing basis through giving financially on a monthly basis.
Why give a financial donation?
By leveraging your support to garner additional resources and funding, we make every dollar go further.
Why give monthly?
Remember to fill your grocerey bag that you received in the mail with with much needed food for the FoodBank. Have the bag out by 9:30 am and an amazing team of volunteers will be picking it up. Thank you for sharing your food with those in need!
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!
The totals are in, and our winning team – for the 2nd year in a row – is Remax Little Oak Realty! Their awesome group rallied together with multiple different fundraising efforts to raise $3000!! As the winning team, they won the coveted Team Challenge Trophy, and amazing gift baskets donated by our friends at the Bay, and Winks.
The runner-up was the ServiceMaster Clean team. Their first year participating, we were blown away by their efforts – raising over $600 for the Team Challenge and donating a service package for our online auction.
Thank you again to all who participated – together you raised over $5200 to help us continue to serve those less fortunate in Abbotsford!
