For the third year in a row, Intelexians were invited to make monetary and food donations to helpToronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank with its Fall Drive. Intelex staff donated a total of $1,175 and just like last year, President and CEO Mark Jaine pledged that the company would match all donations made during the drive, which ran at our office from September 21, to October 14, 2011.
Thanks to the many generous people in our office, Intelex was able to contribute a total of $2,350 toward Daily Bread’s goal for its 2011 Fall Drive. We also collected about 30 lbs of non-perishable food items that will be delivered to a local drop-off location.
Daily Bread Food Bank is a non-profit, charitable organization that is fighting to end hunger in communities across the Greater Toronto Area. Every year thousands of people across the GTA rely on food banks and Daily Bread serves the majority of these people through neighbourhood food banks and meal programs in its member agencies. In 2010, there were over 794,000 client visits to over 170 of Daily Bread’s member agencies food banks and meal programs.
Thanks again to everyone who donated to Daily Bread Food Bank!
