St. Mary’s Food Bank Ninth Annual Fundraising Gala
St. Mary’s Food Bank would like to thank all those who came out
for our Ninth Annual Fundraising Gala!
Without you, this event could never have been the success that it was.
We would also like to thank our wonderful sponsors for their continuous support.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
Anba Abraam was proud to take part in Project Water, an Engage and Change initiative.
This project was born in response to the inexcusable fact that more homeless people die from dehydration in the summer months than from exposure in the winter. Each year hundreds of volunteers commit hundred’s of hours of their time to Project Water: securing the water bottles; warehousing the product; lining up volunteers to help load the water; and, leading the distribution of the product through front-line relief organizations to the homeless during extreme heat alerts. Since its inception, the project has placed in excess of 1.5 million bottles of water into the hands of Toronto and surrounding area homeless through over 170 front-line relief organizations and homeless shelters.
Thanks to Ontario Trillium Foundation, St Mary’s Food Bank (“SMFB”) replaced an old and small freezer with a new freezer and a walk in fridge for its most recent location. The new freezer will enable SMFB to provide its clients with their needs of fresh fruits, vegetables, milk and eggs. The larger freezer capacity also will allow accepting more donations especially during seasons such as in Thanksgiving and Christmas. OTF’s continuous support to SMFB and Anba Abraam Charity sustains our endeavors towards food security and healthier vibrant community.
