​Local Love - $80,000 Community Holiday Giveaway 

2020 has been a tough year for so many, including community groups. Because community is so important at G&F, this holiday season we want to show our appreciation for those who work hard all year to build healthy communities we can all thrive in. 

In honour of G&F’s 80th year in business, this holiday season we gave away $80,000 to local charities and those groups most impacted by COVID!

Charity vote

We asked G&F employees and members to vote on their favourite charity to give a total of $20,000. The results are in!

  1. NightShift Street Ministries - $5,000
  2. AutismBC - $8,500
  3. Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society - $4,000

We also selected a G&F employee at random to give $2,500 to a local registered charity of their choice. They chose to donate it to the Dixon Society!

COVID support

Based on community need and those groups who have been most impacted by COVID, G&F will support the following groups by donating a total of $60,000!

  1. Local food banks
  2. Local hospitals
  3. Local shelters

A huge THANK YOU to all of the local charities, front line workers, volunteers and community leaders for everything you do for our communities.
