Today marks the official launch of North York Harvest’s Winter Food Drive: Reach for a Million. Running until January 10, 2020, our special goal is to raise 1 million combined funds and food.
Reach for a Million is an incredibly important campaign for our organization. While the holidays are a joyous time for many, the winter months also place an immense burden on families in our community. Due to the increased costs of heating and hydro, parents will skip meals from time to time and incur credit card debt in order to keep their kids warm and fed.
Our food bank clients spent almost 3/4 of their monthly income on rent and utilities alone.
So that families in our community don’t have to decide between paying bills and skipping meals, please lend your generous support this winter, so that families in our community can enjoy the holidays without hunger.
Here’s how you can make an immediate difference
