Meaghan recently volunteered at the annual Gift of Giving Back food drive in Burlington in support of the Salvation Army, Halton Women’s Place, Carpenter Hospice and Partnership West. The Gift is an annual food drive which enlists the participation of local hockey clubs to collect, sort and distribute food to local charities and institutions in need of food. The Gift of Giving back is 100% supported by volunteers, and no one is paid to participate.
This year, the drive raised 278,555 pounds of food, bringing the cumulative total of the initiative to over 1,000,000 pounds of food! This food, worth $2.5 million, has gone to provide for and improve the quality of life for thousands of families and individuals who do not have enough to eat.
Congratulations to the volunteers and organizers in making the Gift of Giving Back a wonderful success and for surpassing the 1,000,000 pound mark!
