We did something really good!

It’s hard to believe the whole summer has already gone by since the June 9 Giving Circle!  We recently attended The Compass Foodbank for the Big Cheque Presentation, after raising $8500 to help feed kids from food-insecure homes both breakfast and lunch during the summer months.  Because of our collective effort, 324 kids were helped weekly!

 

According to Melinda Prain, Communications and Fundraising Manager for The Compass: “Thanks to the generosity of 100 Women Who Care Mississauga, The Compass Food Bank & Outreach Centre was able to provide kids summer snack kits to an average of 324 school-age children per week. Each kids pack included healthy snacks such as cheese strings, yogurt, fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy granola bars and more. The donation also enabled us to provide families whose kids are usually part of a school meal program with nutritious food for breakfasts and lunches. 100 Women—you made a big difference in a lot of families’ lives over the summer.”
