As we prepare to close out the year and welcome in a new one, we’re thankful to each and everyone of our clients who made this year a success. To show our gratitude and to give back to the communities we are lucky to serve, we will continue our holiday tradition of contributing to local charities in their fight to tackle food insecurity.
That’s why our staff, along with your help, will be collecting non-perishable items in our branches and virtual donations to support the elimination of hunger in Canada. Whatever you celebrate, it is a time to show love, be compassionate and to support those in need.
Holiday Donations for our Local Food Banks
Our branches will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items to support our local charities. Here is a list of most wanted items you can choose to donate from. Anything you can donate counts.
From November 14 – December 15, we encourage you to drop off donations alongside your shipments when you visit a Chit Chats branch. Your local branch will have a dedicated area for your donations throughout the holiday season.
Our goal is to fill a skid of donations in each Chit Chats region to send to local food banks! And, no matter the size of the donation, we’re grateful for the opportunity to put efforts towards fighting hunger in Canada and we greatly appreciate your help in taking on this challenge.
If you aren’t able to make a physical donation at a Chit Chats branch, or if you prefer to do so online, we also are contributing through a virtual fundraiser to support those that are in need this holiday season. This year we will be collecting donations for Food Banks Canada. Each $1 of your contribution has the power to serve 2 meals! Our goal is to help serve 5000 meals!
How to Make Virtual Donation
To make your donation, please visit our fundraiser campaign page. All donations of $10 and above will be provided with a tax receipt. The virutal fundraiser will run from November 14 – December 31.
Thank you to everyone who has donated and those who are planning to! Your kindness makes all the difference!
In January, we will share our achievement with you on how many meals we were able to serve thanks to your support.
Wishing you a warm holiday season!
The Chit Chats Team
