Staff from Crozier Engineering's Bradford office stopped by the Helping Hand Food Bank on Wednesday morning to drop off a donation in the amount of $5,000, proceeds from their holiday fundraiser.
Every Christmas the company has a staff raffle to raise funds for a local charity in need. The firm has four offices in Ontario, located in Collingwood, Milton, Toronto and Bradford. The Bradford office on John Street recently expanded its office space to accommodate its growing team.
Associate Jim Koutroubis, Branch Manager Geoff Masotti and Marketing Coordinator Christine Hansen were happy to present the cheque to Food Bank President Carolyn Khan, and get a mini-tour of the facility.
Khan was grateful for the donation, noting it has been a "very dry January and February" after the holidays.
"The money lets us buy what we need," said Khan.
The food bank is excited to be moving to its new location around the corner on Church Street at the end of the year which will give them more space to hold donations and service clients.
The Helping Hand Food Bank services around 1,000 clients per month, with two to three new families coming in every week.
The food bank accepts donations year-round and provides tax receipts if needed.
