Sun Life Financial along with Sobeys on Manning Road hope to provide food for 1,000 Windsor families.
On Family Day Monday volunteers will gather at Sobeys from 10am to 12pm to fill boxes that will be distributed to families by the Children’s Aid Society.
“This is the second year that we at Sun Life have celebrated Family Day by enriching the quality of life for families. We recognized the need that exists in our community to support families who may be struggling. Good nutrition and healthy living are keys to a positive lifestyle. By partnering with the Children’s Aid, this food drive will go far in reaching out to the 1 in every 8 children in our area that the Children’s Aid provides services to.” Bill Bevan, Chief Executive Officer of the Windsor‐Essex Children’s Aid Society comments, “What better way to spend Family Day then to gather your family together, come to Sobeys and give a couple hours to help families in need. The Children’s Aid Society is most appreciative to Sun Life Financial, Sobeys and the people of Windsor‐Essex who are supporting this effort.”
Everyone is welcome to stop by and drop off non‐perishable food items or help them fill bags.
