b-LOG: Tulips for Food – A Foodraiser Success!
We wanted to offer our sincere appreciation for the generous outpouring of food we received from so many clients and friends over the last week. In all, we handed out 65 bunches of tulips in exchange for a huge amount of food donations.
A specific weight we do not have but I can tell you when I drove it up to drop it off, no one was able to get in my vehicle with me due to the fact that it was jammed(!) with food. We were able to drop it off to the Astral Niagara 8th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive in support of Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold.
We were so pleased to pull up to the curb and see so many fantastic people volunteering and working together for such a great cause. Ten minutes or so later and all of those donations were transferred onto the city bus which I am told, by the end of the day, was full, which is awesome.
Of course, there were numerous partners involved that helped to make this a success. We wanted to thank the following for their help:
– Sun Valley Group farm for their generous donation of all of those beautiful, locally grown tulips.
– Commercial Digital Print for their generous donation of the printing for the brochure.
– Sally McGarr Realty for contributing the stamps for our mail out.
– Above The Fold Marketing for offering to create that dynamic, eye-catching flyer that we mailed out to so many people.
And again, to all those that were able to donate something for the cause, we salute you! We do recognize that a lot of people have donation and fundraising efforts of their own so to those that couldn’t donate but are doing something of their own, great work and continue on. Every little contribution goes towards strengthening this little community of ours!
