Sun Life Financial in partnership with Sobeys, Manning Road hopes to provide food for 1,000 Windsor families. The “FOOD FOR FAMILIES ON FAMILY DAY 2016″ will benefit families that receive services from the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society.
On “Family Day,”Monday, February 15th, volunteers will gather at Sobeys from 10 a.m. to noon to fill bags that will be distributed to families by the Children’s Aid Society.
According to Paul Lue Pann, Financial Centre Manager of Sun Life’s Anchor Drive office, “This is the second year that we at Sun Life have celebrated Family Day by enriching the quality of life for families. We recognized the need that exists in our community to support families who may be struggling. Good nutrition and healthy living are keys to a positive lifestyle. By partnering with the Children’s Aid, this food drive will go far in reaching out to the 1 in every 8 children in our area that the Children’s Aid provides services to.”
Bill Bevan, Chief Executive Officer of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society comments, “What better way to spend Family Day then to gather your family together, come to Sobeys and give a couple hours to help families in need. The Children’s Aid Society is most appreciative to Sun Life Financial, Sobeys and the people of Windsor-Essex who are supporting this effort.”
If you wish to drop off non-perishable food items or help fill bags, please join them at Sobeys, Manning Road, from 10 a.m. to noon, Monday, February 15th for a great community service project. Refreshments will be provided and there will be great prizes.
