Wildcats In The Community
On Saturday, 16 Wildcats had the opportunity to volunteer at the Edmonton Food Bank sorting food and preparing hampers in the warehouse.
The Edmonton Food Bank works with more than 210 other organizations to serve over 13,000 people per month. These hampers are given to families who are otherwise unable to pay for meals. Approximently 40 percent of their clients are under the age of 18. In addition to the basic hamper program, the Edmonton Food Bank provides food for lunch and snack programs to 35 high risk schools in our city. The Food Bank relies heavily on volunteers to be able to run these programs.
Thank you to the Food Bank for inviting us out and to Jesse Miller, Landyn Vick, Ryan Doram, Brown Courtorielle, Matt Fisher, Brandon Quach, Quincy Sanchez, Marcus Goods, Tony Lawrence, Albanie Laderoute, David Gibbs, Jamie Phelps, Kemal Kochisarli, Kieran Bell, Evin Kochisarli, and Jon Harke for donating your time!
