Toronto Commuters Help Fight Hunger

April 3 2009

On March 31 FYFB held its fourth annual TTC Blitz, where dedicated volunteers ask commuters at downtown subway stations to spare some change for the food bank. This is a great chance for volunteers to help connect FYFB with the larger downtown community and this year we were talking to commuters in a record 13 stations. Toronto's commuters were even more generous than in the past - donating more than $15,000 in spare change.

This year seven law firms competed in the third annual Bay Street Challenge. Osler Hoskin and Harcourt snatched the crown from two-time winner McCarthy Tetrault with $2,100 in donations. Other firms in the challenge included Goodmans; Blakes, Cassels and Graydon; Lerners; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom; and, Heenan Blaikie.

Teams from Thornmark Asset Management Inc. and Porter Novelli Canada also participated in the drive.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who helped to make this event another resounding success for FYFB. Special thanks go out to Jos at The Wearhouse who supplied the volunteer t-shirts. Your help is appreciated!
