We were the recipients of a cheque for $3000 as a result of part of the donations for the Magical Village held at Place d’Orleans in December 2014.
Thanks so much to everyone who donated so generously to this event. We will not have to buy diapers for many weeks!

Alice is a single mom with two children. She found herself laid off from her job, so returned to school to train for another career. During her studies, she worked a part-time job and also had a student loan, but found it very difficult to pay all of her bills and clothe and feed her family. She was able to come to get food to feed her family until she completed her course of study. She is now looking for full-time employment and is very hopeful that, one day, she will be a donor to the Food Cupboard. Her financial responsibilities have been overwhelming and being able to come for food has helped to ease her financial burden.
