During this time of giving, everyone at CIL wants to help out as much as possible. We have contacted Harvest Manitoba and we now have a food donation bin in our reception area. The next time you come to the office, feel free to bring a donation. All donations will be given to the generous folks at Harvest Manitoba. They have been helping Manitobans in need for many years and we are extremely grateful for the work they do.
As I said during my recent presentation for Manitobans for Human Rights, we all need to be part of the solution. This is part of that work. Here is a quote from the Harvest Manitoba website that describes how the donations are used:
Thanks to our amazing community spirit, and generous hearts, Harvest collects and shares 11 million lbs of healthy and nutritious food to hungry Manitobans every year.
With this food, we prepare Harvest Hampers in our Winnipeg Warehouse, which are then distributed to feed 80,000 Manitobans – hungry children, hardworking families and struggling adults – every month. Our volunteers donate almost 200,000 hours of hands-on service annually to make this happen. We would never have lasted this long – 35 years – or helped as many people as we have if it were not for you, the people who support us.
If you or your family members are in need and you would like to receive services from Harvest Manitoba, please contact them:
