Giving back to Food Banks Article

This is always worth a repost to acknowledge Hunger Week (September 18 – 22 2017) and raise awareness. Every day, thousands go hungry and need to access food banks. They need fresh, healthy food as well. Multi Shelters takes these causes seriously, and we do our best to help out where we can. If you work with a project that could use some of our support, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can see what we can do!

Multi Shelter Solutions helps local food bank extend the season!

(Source: ACORN blog)

ACORN conferences are a fun and educational way to connect with other organic producers and consumers from across Atlantic Canada and beyond.  Stronger connections lead to stronger communities and a greater organic resilience in the region.

We at ACORN would like to say an official and public THANK YOU!  to Norm and his generous contribution to food production in New Brunswick. Be sure to chat with Norm and the rest of our supportive Trade Show partners at the Delta Beauséjour – November 20th – 22nd.www.acornconference.org.

 

Giving Back to our Community

Every year at Multi Shelter Solutions we try to collaborate with non profit organizations and other volunteer opportunities to provide a shelter at low or no cost.

We have done shelters for Haiti after the earthquake, a shelter for an eye clinic in the Dominican Republic, arches for Magical Lights of Milton that donates back to the Milton Hospital at Christmas, greenhouse to Aroland First Nations in Northern Ontario to provide food for their community and learning opportunities for the students, and work with Food Bank projects out on the east coast to help provide fresh, healthy vegetables to those most in need, and the list continues to grow. See photos on our “giving back” page.

This is something we believe whole heartedly in and would very much like to work with more causes to help in whatever way we can.  We also want to express gratitude for the various opportunities we’ve had to help out non-profit and not-for-profit groups.

If you know of a project that could use our help, or are involved with something you’d like to see us put some help behind, please don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know about it. This is an ongoing initiative of Multi Shelter Solutions, and as a company, and all our staff, would love to see this continue. Please join us in taking some time to give back, and Pay It Forward. A little smile goes a long way.

Here’s an article written about our east coast project
