Super Restoration: Helping prepare 124,416 meals for those in need

Super Restoration helped assemble a team of 650 volunteers who spent a weekend preparing an astounding 124,416 meals for hungry children around the world during a recent mobile pack event for Feed My Starving Children. This was the company’s third year participating in this worthwhile event.
 “This was my first year being a part of a Feed My Starving Children event. I took on the role as the event coordinator and began working on this project back in August 2018,” said Jamie O’Camb, executive assistant to Rene Vargas (CEO). “After all the hard work was done and everything was ready to go, I couldn’t believe the event day was finally here. That morning, I made my way to the back to see all the people packing the meals. It truly brought tears to my eyes to see such genuine people and families, taking time out of their weekend to pack meals for starving children. This was something that made a huge impact on me and I will continue to support this cause for a very long time.”
In addition to packing meals, the team also helped raise $30,000 for this worthy cause.

Feed My Starving Children Event Supervisor Louis Hintz acknowledged the team’s hard work by saying, “Thank you so much for an amazing event. Thank you all for having a heart for the precious kids that we feed day in and day out. We had a great time working with you all this weekend and appreciate all the hard work you put into this event! The core team, volunteers and everyone else were all incredible. Thanks again!”

FirstService: Providing needed funds to ensure students receive healthy meals

At FirstService’s Toronto office, the Social Responsibility Committee is always looking for ways the team can positively impact its community. Child poverty is a growing problem, and many children do not receive adequate nutrition as a result.  Through a series of “Breakfast Club” fundraisers, the team raised $1,960 to fund Student Nutrition Programs in the Toronto area.  For every $100 raised, 70 children will receive a hot and healthy breakfast. 100% of the donations collected by the team went directly into these programs.
“Food security is something many of us take for granted. For kids, having access to nutritious meals affects their ability to focus and learn in school,” said Erica Foster, senior manager, accounting and part of FirstService’s Social Responsibility Committee. “Toronto Foundation for Student Success’ mission to help students succeed by providing meals is something that resonated to many of us and we wanted to do our part to help ensure no child in Toronto begins the school day hungry.
