On Saturday, September 23, a legion of volunteers will be blanketing multiple Toronto neighbourhoods with 25,000 empty red bags, ready to be filled with food for people experiencing hunger this Thanksgiving season.
This is the fifth annual Purolator Red Bag Campaign in support of Daily Bread Food Bank, and part of Purolator’s nationwide Tackle Hunger program.
This year we’re targeting 50,000 pounds in food donations so we can help set Thanksgiving tables at a time when food-bank use has catapulted to record highs.
Here’s how the campaign works:
If you don’t live in one of these neighbourhoods but you’d like to help, you can donate funds to this campaign online.
Our deepest thanks to Purolator for their longstanding commitment to the fight against hunger, and to our wonderful volunteers for dedicating their time and efforts to making this campaign a success.
With your help, we’ll be able to fill our warehouse and ensure that everyone has access to the food they need this Thanksgiving.
