Charmaine has been volunteering with the food bank for over 2 years. She has great relationships with the clients and she is always happy to serve them. We were very happy when Charmaine approached us in wanting to do something special for the food bank clients for the holiday season. Charmaine wanted to provide a dinner filled with fun activities for the children and entertainment for the adults with dinner. With a little help from the DP Hub team this vision of hers came true on December 19th.
Charmaine recruited some other volunteers from the food bank and planned this event. She got some items donated and some she purchased. A total of 15 families attended the dinner. The kids enjoyed a magic show and the adults enjoyed some fun holiday games. They had an elaborate dinner with salmon, turkey and pasta. The families took pictures with the Christmas tree and the children went home with a gift in their hand. What Charmaine did for those families was memorable. We want to take this time to thank Charmaine for her dedication to the food bank and to Agincourt Community Services Association.
