Sharing With Our Neighbors – Food Drive 2014
It’s that time of year again; the crispness of impending fall is here, as days grow shorter and colder. With this change in the season, and Thanksgiving fast approaching, it is hard not think about other people in the community who may be less fortunate. Here at Shulman Law Firm, we recognize the importance of giving back to a community that supports us with jobs and homes and contains our friends and families. On supporting the local community, Geeta, Financial Administrator, advocates: “The continued development and achievement of my local community’s continued efforts to reach goals for the betterment of our society as a whole, adds value to my purpose as a citizen, and someone who works and lives within the community.”
Last year, Shulman Law firm employees had the pleasure of working alongside North York Harvest Food Bank to run a food drive, during which we were able to contribute 375 lbs worth of food items that were distributed to the local community. This initiative opened our eyes in two ways. In one way we were shocked at how many individuals did not have access to one of life’s basic necessities; nutritious food. Comparatively, we were also pleased with how the local community, comprised of many singular communities, came together to support one another. Ron Shulman, Lawyer, states that “While Toronto is vast and composed of many communities, its sense of unity and coherence on the local and the citywide scale never cease to amaze me.”
This year, with your help, we are looking to once again fill the homes of our neighbors in need with essential food items for the festive season. In order to assist in achieving this goal, Shulman Law Firm has agreed to match the amount of food items donated throughout the course of the food drive. Farah Sidi, Associate Lawyer, believes “A food drive is a great initiative because it supports often what low income people lack the most, basic nutrition.” Let’s get back to the basics this fall, and help fill our neighbors homes with nutritious food!
We will be collecting non-perishable food items at our office (located at 1000 Finch Ave. West, Suite 200, Toronto), starting Tuesday, September 16th, until the end of business day Monday, October 27th.
