BAPS Charities Participates in Mayor’s Food Drive in Toronto, ON
BAPS Charities organized a Food Drive in partnership with Mayor Bonnie Crombie of the City of Mississauga, Ontario. The Drive was held in October 2019 benefiting the Mississauga Food Bank as an effort to support the fight against hunger in the larger community.
“More than 100,000 Mississagua residents live in poverty and struggle to provide adequate nutritious food for themselves and their families,” says Mayor Crombie. “Time and time again, I have witnessed the giving and generous nature of Mississauga residents. We must continue to give back and help in order to make Mississauga a city where no one goes hungry.” Similar food drives have been organized across North America by BAPS Charities to assist local families.
