Hops for Hunger holiday fundraiser returns to Great Lakes Brewery
Between December 1 – December 22, any customer who purchases beer from Great Lakes’ retail store will automatically contribute to the campaign.
“With the purchase of any GLB product between December 1 – 22nd, we’ll calculate a portion of the weight of the beer and donate a percentage of the corresponding poundage amount in dollars,” says Great Lakes President, Peter Bulut. “The more customers buy, the more poundage calculated, and therefore more money will be raised.”
Non-perishable food, baby food and diapers are also in high-need. Customers and supporters to help fill its yellow Daily Bread collection bin located within the store.
Daily Bread Food Bank’s Holiday Drive is aiming to raise $1.5 million in donations and 1.5 million pounds of food.
“When the holiday season starts, it’s especially hard to cope with empty cupboards, that’s why we’re so glad to have Peter and his team supporting Daily Bread with food and cash donations,” said Gail Nyberg, Executive Director of Daily Bread Food Bank. “The generosity of our friends and neighbours here in Etobicoke will make the season happier for families around the corner and across the city.”
$3000 and a full box food donations were donated to the Daily Bread in 2016.
