During the month of November, all eight of Kindred’s branches are collecting financial donations and non-perishable items which will be donated to a local food bank in their respective communities. Food security is recognized as a pressing issue that is increasing in severity across our communities.
Through our community engagement work, we have learned that food banks are seeing sustained increases in demand for their programs and resources at record breaking levels. At Kindred, we believe in Banking with Purpose and we’re grateful to our faithful members and for community partners who help bring our purpose to life in the communities we’re so fortunate to serve.
Rebecca Smith, Kindred’s Vice President, Engagement and Values noted “It’s through meaningful cooperation with community partners and our members’ commitment to mutual aid that we are able to inspire peaceful, just, and prosperous communities. Together, we support organizations who work to directly address the challenges, including food security, impacting our neighbors. We hope that our actions will inspire others across Ontario to offer their support and help us address hunger in our communities!”
