Story of Impact – Partnering With Our City

We love partnering with our friends from Walter E. Harris Public School right here in Oshawa! Several of their students help out on a monthly basis from sorting food, to setting up for the weekly Food Bank. Below are a few photos of the Grade 1 class who collected non-perishable food items for the Food Bank! We love it when we can work together within community in order to give back to our city!
