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!
We asked G&F employees and members to vote on their favourite charity to give a total of $20,000. The results are in!
- NightShift Street Ministries - $5,000
- AutismBC - $8,500
- 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!
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!
- Local food banks
- Local hospitals
- 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.
