‘Tis The Season To Stay Calm & Give Back!
This is what a Christmas miracle looks like.
This past month, we have witnessed an overwhelming response from the Burlington community to compassionately help our most vulnerable. From high school students, youth sports teams, community members, healthcare heroes and small businesses, to our partners the City of Burlington, the Burlington Fire Department and Burlington Centre who graciously donated space to help us create a Holiday Food Drive Headquarters — kindness and compassion prevailed in 2020.
One can at a time. The community responded. Hundreds of high school volunteer hours were earned by students who collected donations. Thousands of compassionate young athletes and community members flooded our little storefront with bags and bags of food donations. And our healthcare heroes still took the time to make yet another remarkable difference in our community.
Together, we accumulated 68,000+ lbs and $9,000+ monetary donations for our six beneficiaries. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Burlington!
Let’s continue to take good care of one another. Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday season and safe & healthy New Year!
