FOR THE FIFTH YEAR IN A ROW, the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank has been the recipient of a major September food drive led by Geranium Homes. Homeowners, staff, suppliers, consultants and trades people of the company’s The Neighbourhoods of Cardinal Point in Stouffville all contributed much needed food items. Company President Boaz Feiner presented a cheque in the amount of $10,630. The amount represents the combined total of funds from Geranium’s donation of $50 per home sold at Cardinal Point in the past year as well as contributions including $2,000 from James Hardie Building Products. Every year, SCS Consulting Group organizes the collection of food from the trades and suppliers.
“From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone who contributes along with Geranium to give us such a huge boost each year,” says Marion Wells, executive director of the Food Bank.
At its annual Barbecue-in-the-Park event on Sept. 7, Geranium kicked-off its Food Drive.
Throughout the month, homeowners dropped off food donations to the Cardinal Point sales centre and tradespeople brought items to the construction site office. On Sept. 27 Marion Wells and Mayor Wayne Emmerson arrived at Cardinal Point for the final tally and cheque presentation.
Emmerson says that every $1 donated is actually the equivalent of $3 in the hands of the organizers of the food bank who are able to use the money to purchase fresh meat, eggs, bread, cheese and other items to supplement the non-perishable goods. “Geranium’s leadership means so much to this volunteer organization. I am very appreciative of their contribution.”
