No matter where we live, no matter who we are, we’ve all been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. And we don’t have to be sick to feel vulnerable and afraid.
Since 2015, I Can for Kids has been proudly supporting thousands of hungry children and youth in Calgary over the summer break.
Today, we’re concerned about the lasting impact early school closures and job loss will have on them and their families. For many, hunger was already a way of life. But for so many more who were only a paycheque away, they are living in a new and scary reality.
We can help. We want to help. And we’re ready to help.
Over the coming weeks, while we continue to plan our summer program, we will work with our agency partners to provide grocery gift cards to children and their families who are facing immediate food insecurity.
This will take considerable support from the community. We expect that we will need to raise at least an additional $50,000, over and above our usual summer fundraising.
Your donation today matters. Every dollar will make a difference to hungry children in Calgary in the weeks and months ahead.
