Nutrition for Learning Fundraiser
This last Thursday, Hopeaholics was fortunate enough to participate in the Nutrition for Learning program here in Kitchener. I was invited to Trillium Park School by Brian Banks who is in charge of Community Development, to see first hand how the 9000 children this organization feeds, benefit every day. These children are fed breakfast, lunch and are provided snacks for their day. The added bonus of this program, is that it’s not just a place where children and young youth come to eat, but it is also a place where friendships are formed. The children leave with full tummies, strong minds, and healthy spirits, thanks to the 1200 volunteers that work diligently everyday at creating these wonderful meals. What a great way to start their day! Hopeaholics is having a HUGE fundraiser for this organization. We are going to sell 9000, yes you read it right, 9000 bracelets for the end of the school session this year in June. It’s a big number, but it can be done. Nutrition for Learning feeds 9000 children so the 9000 bracelets represent each child in this program. Hopeaholics is donating $1.00 from each Hope bracelet that is sold, to assist with the continuation of the work that is done through Nutrition for Learning. Please click on the Hopeaholics store tab and place your order for your bracelets, or you can call directly at 1-519-589-1158. Buy the bracelets for your family, your friends, yourself or for someone that you may know that needs a little hope in their lives. It’s a small gesture, but it will have a BIG impact on the 9000 children that depend on Nutrition for Learning everyday!
