Ballistic Gives Back Food Drive BBQ
September 16, 2016
A few months ago, the Ballistic Arts Social Committee decided that they wanted to give back to the community by organizing a “do good” charity event. After a lot of hard work and dedication, the Ballistic Gives Back Food Drive BBQ was born. Our goal was to raise 120lbs of non-perishable food items, which is equivalent to 100 meals for people in need.
We are thrilled to announce that our clients, neighbours, friends, and staff members came together to donate $180.00 and over 350lbs of food to the SHARE Food Bank.
The SHARE Food Bank distributes 5,000 pounds of food to a minimum of 375 families in the Tri-Cities and adjacent communities every week. As the Food Bank is not government funded, it’s services are facilitated by many hard working volunteers and donations from our community. Last year, $47,000 was raised for the SHARE Food Bank through third-party events.
Cobs Bread graciously donated buns for us to make delicious hot dogs to serve to all the people who dropped by for donations. Thank you!
The BC Salmon Farmers Association were so extremely kind to donate fresh salmon for the BBQ. Our chef Dustin made delicious marinated BBQ Salmon for our guests to enjoy. Thank you!
