Through its recent barbecue, Milmine Insurance Management raised $1,000 and collected donations of two shopping carts full of food and 30 fleece blankets for the Stoney Creek Community Food Bank.
“The Stoney Creek Community Food Bank provides an essential service for our community residents, and so it is our pleasure to fundraise this year on their behalf,” said Mary Pender, Milmine Insurance Management. “Many of us do not know what it’s like to wonder where our next meal will come from, and for those who do experience this uncertainty on a regular basis, the Stoney Creek Community Food Bank is a big support.
"We are hopeful that the blankets, food, and monetary donations raised today will assist the food bank in their sustained efforts to make a difference in the lives of Stoney Creek residents.”
Pender also thanked Royal Canadian Legion Stoney Creek branch for its support.
The Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario supports community agencies across Ontario each year by donating thousands of fleece blankets and organizing fundraising events.
