A message from The Compass Food Bank & Outreach Centre
We are currently gearing up for this year’s Walk the Walk for the Compass, and our amazing volunteers are a core part of what makes the event so special every year. While this year we will be doing a Virtual walk for the first time, it’s still going to be lots of fun!
The walk has traditionally been a great opportunity for Compass volunteers to get together, and though we will not be able to meet up in person and walk together, the virtual walk will allow you to put your Compass shirt on and walk or run your favourite routes. You are welcome to walk by yourself, or sign up your family and create a team. Spread the word, and walk wherever you’d like, indoors or outdoors. The Walk will take place between September 13th and September 19th, 2020 this year, and you can sign up for the Walk today by clicking here https://thecompass.ca/walk/ and register to fundraise online through Canada Helps, or download a traditional fundraising form. This graphic will give you more information on ‘How to Walk the Walk’.
Last year your volunteering, hard work and donations helped us distribute 486,000 pounds of food, serving over 7000 hot meals and 18,000 snacks! We provided 46 children spaces in day camps and 186 backpacks filled with school supplies. Walk the Walk for the Compass helps us provide help for today and hope for tomorrow to our clients.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
So tighten your shoelaces, and we’ll ‘see’ you soon!
