Live Free from Hunger campaign

Our Neighbourhood Group has a Food and Friends student nutrition program available to our school age children in the community. The morning meal program has been running here for the past 5 years. Many children arrive at school each day without any food to sustain them an entire school day. We know once healthy food is provided, a child's world changes. They become more alert, able to concentrate, improve socially, physically and academically. This program is vital to our community. Our Food and Friends morning meal program is running our annual live free fundraiser.

Giving is very easy. Simply click on link below and choose the Brant Ave Neighbourhood Group from the drop down choices. 

Katie, Nicki and Lynne will all give up something that has meaning to them on Feb 28th for the day to do our part to contribute to the live free campaign.

You can either make a donation here at the Friendship Place (35 Algonquin Road) or make a secure donation online. 

For this, we have created a bit of an incentive and that is for every donation you make (even $2 helps us reach our goal of $200) your name will be entered into a draw.  You can choose between 6 bikes (16 or 18 inch suitable for 5 - 7 year old children) or a $50 PC grocery card - you choose which draw you would like your name to go into) Every dollar we raise helps fund our program here at the Friendship Place.

Thank you for your support!
