YES Energy Solutions lend a hand at Halifax’s foodbank Dec 23, 2019
Halifax’s Food and Support Drop-In gained more volunteers in the run up to Christmas from our staff this December.
Our employees have
been helping out at the foodbank throughout December to create food parcels
that are given out on Saturday mornings.
The company also pulled together to donate food such as
tinned vegetables, beans and soup to the support group each week.
The assistance from YES Energy Solutions, is part of our pledge to help the local communities in which we work.
Hazel Murgatroyd, who oversees the work by volunteers,
explained: “We get busy at this time of
year, and we need volunteers to help us sort through all the donations of food
we get in the run up to Christmas.”
“We are very thankful
that staff from YES Energy Solutions have come down to help us this month.”
Emma Blackburn, employee at YES Energy Solutions said: “It’s great to be able to do our bit for
people less fortunate than us, especially at this time of year.”
“It was inspiring to
meet the volunteers that help every week to keep the food bank running, and to
see the generosity of people, I’m glad I was able to be part of it.”
The Food and Support Drop-In at New Ebeneezer Church in
Halifax are asking for donations to be dropped off on Thursday mornings.
