Each year, Choices Markets asks our customers to help support those less fortunate in our community with our Star of the Season campaign. These donations go directly to local neighbourhood houses, community organizations and food banks found near our stores. These organizations are on the ground floor of helping people who are our friends and neighbours when they need it most.
This year, despite hardships from the pandemic, our customers really pulled through. You donated nearly $62,000 at our tills, which is nearly double the amount we raised last year!
We’ve split up the donations and have sent them to the following organizations:
Little Mountain Neighbourhood House
Britannia Community Services Centre
Gordon Neighbourhood House
Marpole Oakridge Family Place
Fraserside Community Services
Semiahmoo Family Place
The Bridge Youth and Family Services
Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House
Abbotsford Community Services
North Shore Neighbourhood House
Thank you for your incredible generosity, and we hope we can match this total or do even better next year!
