Involve and Inspire

Giving back and get involved in volunteering at Surrey Food Bank this summer!  (FREE EVENT)

The Surrey Food Bank was formed in June 1983.  Over the last 34 years, the Surrey Food Bank Society has been dedicated to help people to get back on their feet in Surrey and North Delta.  The organization currently distributes approximately 2,000 food hampers each week! It has expanded support to many other internal programs, agencies, and is affiliated with many different food security programs, such as the Food Action Coalition.

The Food Bank give people a “hand up, not a hand out” by providing nutritious food in a respectful and dignified environment.   They are also taking the responsibility to connect their clients to other community services as a means of helping their clients become self-sufficient.

As volunteers are essential to the success of serving and helping the community, the Surrey Food Bank depends on volunteers for many different functions – from sorting and distributing food to representing the organization at community events, such as “Breakfast with the bank”.  Volunteers can help the organization save money on costs and able to direct more of the donation to purchasing food.

WE NEED YOU!!

It can be challenging during the summer to get volunteers for the distribution of food (or sorting/packing of food hampers) as many people are busy with their holidays.  Our community needs us to lend a hand to help people in need!

If you have some free time available to join us, the CPA Surrey, Langley, North Delta Chapter would love to have your help!

Remember the feeling when you give your seat to someone on the sky train?  Remember how you feel after when you lend a hand to someone you don't even know when they are in need?  Yes! It makes you feel fulfilled and happier!

After the volunteer event, CPA SLND Chapter have arranged for dinner and swag as a token of appreciation.  You can get a chance to mingle with other CPA members or students.

We are looking for 10 members/students to help out at this event of giving back.  We hope to see you there!
