Giving Back

This year, our head office partnered with Murray Latta Progressive to hold a food drive for the Surrey Food Bank. For five weeks, we brought in non-perishable food items to fill the food bank boxes that we displayed in our front reception area.

Our creativity and sense of fun was evident in the kinds of items we brought to fit with a weekly theme. We started with things such as pancake mixes with syrup, and oatmeal along with canned fruit for our Breakfast Week and we ended with Dinner Week that included items for meals such as spaghetti dinners, macaroni and cheese, Chinese food fixings, cans of hearty stew and more. We finished up the drive with a Baby Week where we contributed baby/toddler items from diapers to formula.

Volunteers from the Surrey Food Bank arrived on Wednesday morning to pick up our contribution and we were surprised when an old friend and co-worker walked through the door to load up our boxes. Bill, who worked for Brunette for many years, now retired, burst into the office with a big grin and a boisterous voice — proclaiming his excitement at seeing his Brunette family again. What a thrill — a happy mini-reunion with a favoured workmate!

Food Bank Pick-Up

This was our first time holding an organized charity event in the office and we feel it was a great success! We hope to continue to hold such charitable efforts in the future. Not only did we help hungry people by filling sixteen boxes with nutritious food, but in doing so, we discovered a bonding, uplifting experience that showed a generosity of spirit that we all can be proud of.

Together we accomplished a lot and made a difference to vulnerable members of our community.
