Our eCE team loves a great challenge, which is evident in our latest Food Bank donation competition! Each of the four teams were assigned a donation category and were given two weeks to fill their Food Bank donation boxes.
Congratulations to “The Lucky Team” who won the challenge!
At the end of the day, the biggest winner is The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. With combined efforts, our teams donated 303 items and $820 in donations. These donations will be used to assist 1 in 20 households in Waterloo Region who are in need of food assistance.
Since hunger can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time, The Food Bank relies on community support to assist households in our region all year around.
