CKE Christmas Toy and Food Bank Drive

December 11, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

CKE Christmas Toy and Food Bank Drive

One day only!
Saturday December 11 from 9am-noon at the CKE Community Hall.

Drop off your donations and help us fill a Calgary Food Bank truck as well as build a mountain of toys for Calgary’s children. We will also be collecting for The Mustard Seed.

To refer to the “wish list” of each organization please go to:

CTV Toy Mountain wish list

Calgary Food Bank wish list

Mustard Seed wish list

If you are unable to drop off and you want to make a donation please contact Dawn Messer 403.605.1821 or Zonita Haggis 587.582.2599 to make arrangements.

Cheques are being accepted. Please make out to “Calgary Woman’s Emergency Shelter”, “Calgary Food Bank”, or “The Mustard Seed”. They can be dropped off in the hall mailbox.

CKE Community Association will also be hosting a Virtual Food Drive from December 1-24, 2021. For every $1 received, the Calgary Food Bank can distribute $5 worth of food. Food insecurity is often a faceless or hidden problem, and your donation could be helping your friend, your neighbour, or someone else you might know. Donations made online of $3 or more will receive a charitable tax receipt through The Calgary Food Bank’s online giving platform Canada Helps.

One in eight households in Canada struggle with food insecurities. This Holiday season we can make a difference. With this donation you are helping to ensure that every food hamper has enough nutritious food for an entire family. Together we can fight hunger!

 

**There are toy shortages expected for this Christmas. We recommend picking up your toys ASAP.**
