Day 5 – The 12 Days of Giving

The “12 Days of Giving – 12 Days of Christmas” giveaway is open to all followers or fans of my Facebook page and you can just click here to  “like” the page and follow the contest!

Day 5 of giving is proud to spotlight the Guelph Food Bank for the Charity of The Day!

Families or individuals struggling financially and unable to meet their needs can have a difficult time any season in our community, but Christmas can be an especially difficult time and this is where the Guelph Food Bank steps in.  The Guelph Food Bank (GFB) was established by Spiritwind Christian Centre in 1989.  Their motto is “people helping people since 1989”.   Guelph Food Bank clients vary in age, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, but they have one thing in common: they are all faced with financial hardship.  Their goal is not only to help meet the needs of their clients in the short term, but also to help clients become self-sufficient and gain and maintain self-worth to eventually stand on their own with little or no help.  The Guelph Food Bank relies on the support of the community through food drives, on-going bin collections in stores, and direct recovery from manufacturers & distributors.   Right now, the most needed items are:  Most Needed Items: Canned Meats: Tuna/Salmon/Ham/ Chicken, Peanut Butter, Cheese Spread, Canned Fruit, Canned Vegetables, Stew & Soups, Meal Helper, Canned Tomatoes, Pasta Sauce, Cereal, Dry Pasta, Rice, Juices, Coffee, Tea, Adult & Children’s Toiletries, Baby Formula, Baby Foods, Girls & Boys Diapers Size 5 & 6.   If you would like to volunteer, or donate to this fantastic endeavour, or for more details, please click here:  http://guelphfoodbank.ca

Today is the 5th day of giving and one of my lucky followers will win Five (5) Cash for Life lottery tickets!  And, once we get 12 comments on the official post, the Guelph Food Bank will also receive a $50 donation!!
