A Day at the Food Bank
Investors Group advisors have, for years, been spearheading food drives at community food banks. On May 10, though, 14 advisors and assistants from the Greater Vancouver Central Region office decided to help out another way.
The office spent the day at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank sorting dry foods and drinks into different groups and then boxing them so the goods could be distributed to the needy. “The food bank is dependent upon volunteers to sort out food arrivals for distribution,” says Bala Naidoo, the office’s regional director. He and his team packed an impressive 20 pallets of boxes in about three hours. “We thoroughly enjoyed our experience,” says Naidoo.
