Some of us might have experienced hunger before. You would never forget what it was! Canada is like a paradise to live, which makes us think that hunger is far away from us. Unfortunately, in Edmonton's food bank, hamper program recipients have risen to over 20,000 people per month and the meal and snack programs have increased to nearly 500,000 meals and snacks each month. Over 40% of those are children under the age of 18! The pandemic only makes things worse.
Edmonton is our home! We may all need help somehow these days. But now let us help those who need it most and need it desperately. Edmonton’s food bank has a good record. All the funds will go to the food bank. Donations are tax deductible. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more. Credits cards are acceptable.
You don’t have to be a Chinese immigrant to donate. Our goal is the same, to make all of us, not just most of us to have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
If there is only once in your lifetime that you want to donate to the food bank, it is now!
