Hunger Awareness Week

At Multi Shelter Solutions, we are committed to helping eliminate food insecurity and people going hungry. During the pandemic earlier this year, we were fortunate to be considered an essential service due to providing structures to grow food and take care of various equipment, animals and other tasks on the farm.

We have helped numerous food banks, particularly associated with schools, to help grow food for the people who need to use them. Partnering with schools, this also allows the ability to teach the kids how to grow the food that they, and their families, are eating.

This future planning and thinking is a sustainable way for all of humanity. With this week being Hunger Awareness week, we want to highlight this special cause and initiative, that is needed all year long. Through our Giving Back program at Multi Shelters, we have donated to various charities that provide food, as well as donating structures to communities in need. If you or someone you know has an organization that could benefit from this, please reach out and have a discussion from Norm about how Multi Shelters can partner with you to help make food insecurity a less prominent concern in our society. And please, if you see someone in need and can help, please do. We are all connected, we are all one.

New Initiatives for Gratitude in 2020

In 2020 we are going to take the giving back initiative to an even higher level. We are excited to have you as a part of this program!
 
When you receive your order, there will be a thank you gift for having trusted us with your shelter requirements
 
Also, we will be making a donation for each structure that is purchased. There will be a little card included in your parts package which lets you know what charity your order is supporting. Each month there will be a different charity. Details of these charities with the opportunity of finding out more is on our website and social media channels
 
A key part of our business success and growth is word of mouth referrals. This is something we are so grateful for. In your thank you package, you will also be getting some business cards to assist in spreading the word.
When you do spread the word, please let the recipient know the importance of letting us know who they received the recommendation from so that we may share a thank you with you, when they call us
 
We appreciate you doing this and want to acknowledge you for spreading the word with a token of our gratitude.
 
Another part of our giving back program is where we give significant discounts to groups that combine teaching, food and under privileged. We have had the privilege of sharing in some amazing projects.Check out our website for details on some of these projects
 
It is a natural fit between food & greenhouses ….teaching & schools. If you know of a group that fits those parameters and could use some help have them contact us.
 
We are looking forward to working with you on your structure project and sharing gratitude and positive experiences with you in 2020
