Windsor-Essex children's aid, supported by Sun Life Financial and Sobeys, took the occasion of family day to collect food for foster children. Many donors go away from this kind of drive with the warm feeling of helping a child in need. But in the past fixcas has found that donations to social services agencies were split among the social workers, stolen by a social worker    or sold for cash to foster children.
Family Day Food Drive
Sun Life Financial along with Sobeys on Manning Road hope to provide food for 1000 Windsor families.
On Family Day, Monday, February 16th, volunteers will gather at Sobeys from 10am to 2pm to fill boxes that will be distributed to families by the Children’s Aid Society.
“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.” remarked Paul Lue Pann, Financial Centre Manager of Sun Life’s Anchor Drive office/.
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.”
