Thanks for the support during busiest year ever

Dear Editor,

As another year has come to a close we want to take a moment and report on our last fiscal year (2016/2017) and say Thank You.

You may have heard that this year has been our busiest ever (since 2013) and that’s true, but what is more important is that because of the amazing generosity of Terrace and our community we have been able to meet this challenge.

Terrace is a very special place where people come together to help those in need and lend a hand where ever they can. Our donations of food and funds are higher than last year and our volunteer numbers are higher, both the number of people that volunteered at the Food Bank last year, and the amount of time they volunteered.

We truly could not do this without your support and we are so grateful. We always say that we are community owned and community supported, but never has this this been more true than in the past year.

This Christmas Season is going to be a busy time at the Terrace Church’s Food Bank, but with the support of community behind us, it’s going to be one of the best.

Than​k you City of Terrace and the surrounding area communities.

Matt Kawei

Secretary, TCFB
