Genome BC - Holiday Food Drive 2017

Hello Genome BC Team :)

It's that time of year again! In the spirit of the season upon us, we will be holding a Food Drive for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS) on Wednesday, December 13th at our Staff Meeting.

We will be continuing with the format that we changed to last year by hosting a Virtual Food Drive which will allow us to easily collect donations online and will make it easier for everyone to donate.

We have been quite successful in the past 11 years in donating a number of boxes of food and cash donations for this cause. Last year alone we raised $3,385 in cash and 1 full box of food which was not only our best year ever but way over and above what we have done before! This success has only been possible because we have pulled together as a team to make it happen!

Remember that cash donations to the Food Bank are valued at 3x the purchasing power per dollar. The GVFBS will issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more.

We will be holding a raffle for some FANTASTIC! prizes at our December 13th Staff meeting - details follow:

  • ANY cash donation up to $39 or ANY food donation = 1 entry
  • $40 donation = 2 entries
  • For every additional $40 donation you get 1 additional entry
  • As agreed at last year’s food drive, please note that you can only win ONE prize – if your name is drawn twice, you will not receive a 2nd prize. (More ballots will give you a higher chance of having your name drawn but there is a maximum of one prize per person.)

Looking forward to another successful food drive :)

Thanks very much!!
