"I just wanted to write to say a huge THANK YOU!! What a beautiful gift my grocery bag was! It was SO nice to have so many treats that I would pick out for myself 100%! Right down to the fact that the cereal I got is my favourite kind. I just wanted to express to you what a joyous experience that was for me - I had my birthday right at the beginning of the pandemic and didn't get to see anyone or celebrate so getting my grocery bag filled with such awesomeness actually felt like I was receiving a wrapped present. I wanted to share this with you so you know that what you and the volunteers and donors provide is so very appreciated and cherished. Thank you thank you thank you!"

"When COVID struck we knew that not only our current clients would need continued support, but that the need would increase. With help from the Emergency Campaign, we immediately transitioned to grocery store gift cards to limit the physical contact before transitioning to curbside pickups and contactless deliveries of the food. We are now serving more clients than ever each month thanks to the hard work of our volunteers and the support of donors."
