Support the Decade One Holiday Fund Appeal

October 29 2008

FYFB Decade One Fund AppealFor a decade, FYFB has been there for our clients during the holiday season. This November we are kicking off a special Decade One Holiday Fund Appeal to ensure we will continue to be there to meet the needs of so many as we face an unprecedented demand for our services.

With hundreds of children relying on FYFB every month, the holidays can be a very difficult time of year for families who need our services. And with a 50 percent rise in client need over the past 24 months, the Decade One Holiday Fund Appeal is critical to ensuring we are there to meet the needs of our neighbours who are living in poverty in our city.

We invite you to please help us help families in need by supporting our Decade One Holiday Fund Appeal with an urgently needed donation. Your support can make the difference in creating positive holiday memories for these families at this important time of the year.

You can make a difference in our community this Holiday Season by donating securely online through the Canada Helps website here or by mailing or dropping off your donation at:

About the Fort York Food Bank

FYFB is a multi-service agency focused on reconnecting people with our community. We do this by working with partners who share our vision to: feed the hungry by providing the basic nutritional requirements to individuals and families in need; and, help people get on track by providing counselling, training and advocacy to help people find jobs, safe housing and appropriate social/community programs.

FYFB was founded in February 1998 as an independent agency of the Daily Bread Food Bank Foundation of Toronto. FYFB is a registered charitable organization -- number 867147464 RR0001. FYFB is governed and managed by a voluntary Board of Directors who are elected by our membership at our AGM.

FYFB originally focused on providing emergency food supplies, but to meet the economic and social needs of the most vulnerable people within our community and resolve our clients' underlying issues, FYFB's programming has grown to an integrated set of services to prevent homelessness, eliminate hunger and provide a safe environment for connecting with our community.
