Strategic Group is partnering with the Calgary Food Bank for the 5th annual Let’s Eat! campaign June 13-20 to collect non-perishable food items in participating building lobbies. Our goal is to provide more than 5000 pounds of food to the food bank – for every one pound collected, Strategic Group will match with a one dollar donation (up to $5000). Last year, we expanded the campaign to Edmonton in support of Edmonton’s Food Bank and will be collecting donations in our CN Tower, Circle Square and Harley Court buildings.
This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many and we strongly encourage you join this effort to reach out to our neighbours in need of a helping hand.
Every day, the food bank receives over 250 phone calls on the hamper request line. The number of hampers distributed in March 2015 more than doubled in March 2016. The number of new clients accessing the food bank has increased by 23% (a normal year-to-year increase is 3-4%).
Alberta’s economic downturn has affected many families and individuals and the food bank is in dire need of our help.
