Living Realty recently launched its sixth annual Thanksgiving food drive to collect non-perishable food items and raise funds for the Daily Bread Food Bank.
Since 2017, Living Realty has collected over 5,000 lbs. of food, and donations to the Daily Bread Food Bank have totalled more than $20,000.
Following the success of last year’s hybrid food drive, this year, Living Realty will once again give people the option to donate food in person or make online donations. Donation boxes are set up at Living Realty’s branch offices in Markham, North Markham, North York, downtown Toronto and central Mississauga. Living Realty staff will be on hand at each location to assist people with their donations of non-perishable food items.
An online donation page has also been created to allow people to donate without visiting a branch. All donations made through the page will go directly to the Daily Bread Food Bank and a tax receipt will be available for donations over $10.
Living Realty is pledging $2 to the food bank for every pound of food collected. The company will also donate $2 for every $1 donated through the online donation page. It pledges to make a minimum donation of $5,000 this year.
“Supporting the community around us has always been important to Living Realty, and that support is needed now more than ever. The rising cost of living has left many families struggling, and it is crucial that we do our part to help,” says broker of record Kelvin Wong. “By donating food and money to Daily Bread Food Bank, we can help get food and other support to those that need it most in our community.”
