For those of you who don’t know, Integral Group’s office is located in the City of Markham, Ontario. When our Giving Back committee first began to plan events, we wanted one charity that we support to be located within our community. Markham Food Bank is a local organization, fairly small in size (as are we) with a real and urgent need. And so we chose to support them – both with donations of food and with money.
We recently completed our fall Food Drive and Bake Sale in support of the Food Bank.
Our Bake Sale raised $506 and Integral Group matched that amount, so our donation to Markham Food bank was $1,012. Our local news recently reported on the value of cash donations to food banks:
$10 delivers 100 meals
$500 delivers 5,000 meals
$1000 delivers 10,000 meals
While all of us lament that there is a need for Food Banks, we take heart in knowing that we played a part in ensuring no one goes hungry.
