BEST Shredding / BEST Service Pros Support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank
To give back to our community this season, BEST is launching a Holiday Food Drive, and you are warmly invited to join in. Starting this week, we will be gathering non-perishable food items to donate to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society to help them meet their demands this winter.
For every non-perishable food item you bring in we will shred 1 bankers box of paper for free! (Up to 3 boxes). The Food Drive will run from November 24 to December 31. You can bring in your donation to our Langley or Vancouver locations:
|Fraser Valley Shredding Location||Vancouver Shredding Location|
|Unit 1 – 9938 201st Street
|5594 Fraser Street
For more information please call: 1-855-GET-BEST (438-2378)
The Greater Vancouver Food Bank collects and distributes food to over 25‚000 people weekly through 15 food depots and over 100 community agencies located in Vancouver‚ Burnaby‚ New Westminster and the North Shore. Each year, over 8 million pounds of food are moved through their warehouse. The Food Bank relies solely on the generosity of individuals and organizations willing to donate funds‚ food and time.
As you probably know, due to the global economic downturn the number of people turning to food banks is on the rise. The HungerCount 2010 Survey shows that food banks across Canada helped 28% more citizens in 2010 than in 2008. In BC, 30% of the people seeking food are children. Our collective offering will directly support the dignity of those facing hunger and food insecurity in the Lower Mainland, so let’s put together a vanload of nutritious food.
