Every year the holiday season comes around, and there are families in the Halifax Regional Municipality who may not have the opportunity to enjoy a holiday meal. Although the holidays are an exciting time with food, fun and family, not everyone shares the same excitement.
The Give BACK believes that ALL of us can play a role in ensuring that those around us are doing & living well. We believe that taking a collective responsibility to ensure our friends in our communities across HRM are doing well is what this initiative is all about.
What Happened to date?
Since 2016, The Give BACK has raised approximately $14,889 from community member donations in the Halifax Regional Municipality. The money raised helped provide 156 families across HRM with a Holiday meal, toys for kids or a grocery gift card. The Give-BACK, since 2016, also donated approximately 150 pounds of canned goods and $1,374 to Feed Nova Scotia.
Minus the gofundme platform fees, 100% of the proceeds go to families locally in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
It is amazing when we all come together! Although monetary donations are the cornerstone of this initiative, the community can also participate by spreading the word through social media, at your workplace or in your community.
Like last year, the money raised will purchase gift cards in $100 denominations. The campaign will end on December 18th.
We want to make this holiday season memorable for as many families across HRM as possible!
