From all of us at First Reference, we wish you a safe and happy holiday!
At this time of year, we like to support organizations that are helping others.
This year, we’ve chosen The Vaughan Food Bank, an organization dedicated to serving the needy residents of Vaughan, agencies in York Region, such as Loft Community Services, Crosslinks Street Outreach Services Network, the Vitanova Foundation, Caritas, 360 kids, and Elspeth Heyworth Centre for Women, in addition to other food banks in York Region.
Operating since 1995, the Vaughan Food Bank is run entirely by volunteers; there are no paid staff. The Vaughan Food Bank is supported by contributions from various corporations and individuals and receives no monetary support from municipal, provincial or federal governments.
Learn more about the Vaughan Food Bank and how you can donate or volunteer at www.vaughanfoodbank.ca.
Happy holidays and all the best for the new year!
Please note: Our office will be closed for the holidays starting Tuesday, December 24, 2019, at noon and will reopen on Wednesday, January 2, 2020.
