National Volunteer Week is here!!
April 13th - 18th, 2015
This week is National Volunteer Week and I would like to take a moment to express how much we at the Golden Food Bank LOVE our volunteers!!We are so fortunate to have a group of volunteers as dedicated and hard working as all of you! Thank you so very much for your ideas, passion and support! We look forward to seeing you all out to help in the future! Thank YOU!
BEING A VOLUNTEER It’s not for money, it’s not for fame. It’s not for any personal gain. It’s just for love of fellow man. It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give a little of self. That’s something you can’t buy with wealth.
It’s not for medals worn with pride.
It’s for the feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward deep in your heart.
It’s that feeling that you’ve been a part.
Of helping others far and near.
That makes you be a volunteer.

Come see us at IGA on Saturday, May 2nd! Glacier Raft Company is helping us Fill A Raft of donations for the Food Bank! We will also be raffling off a raft trip for two!!
In support of Every Plate Full, the Golden Food Bank will be hosting our Annual Food Drive on Saturday, May 9th, 2014. In the past this event has raised close to $15,000 in donations for the Food Bank. In order to have a successful year again we will need many helping hands! This year there will be two opportunities to volunteer with us for the food drive.
Wednesday, May 6th, 1pm - 4pm - We will need volunteers to circulate throughout town and drop off recyclable grocery bags. We are asking residents to fill their grocery bags with items they wish to donate and simply leave the bag on their door step for pick-up on Saturday.
Saturday, May 9th, 12pm - This is the BIG day! We will be breaking up into teams and each team will be assigned a section of town to pick-up non-perishables left on the doorsteps of our neighbours. Both of these days will require lots of volunteers and also volunteers with trucks for transportation. If you are able to help out on either of these days (or both) please reply to this email to let us know! We love seeing new faces volunteering with us so pass this info on to any others you think may be interested! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call at (250) 344-2113 or email at email@example.com.
Hope to see you all out for the Food Drive!
