Gateway Gives Xmas 2019

As we near the end of this Holiday Season, we reflect on the year we’ve had and celebrate our many good moments. For some in our communities this has been a tough year. While we count our many blessings it is important to remember those less fortunate than ourselves and help out, pitch in and make a difference where we can.

In true GatewayGIVES style, I am very proud to say that thanks to our over 8,000 team members and our many customers across Canada we have done just that.

To-date we have collectively donated over 5,116lbs of food including 539 boxes of Kraft Dinner, 109 pairs of Pajamas, over 400 winter clothing items, more than 1,400 toys, and over $113,000 in cash and in-kind to various Food Banks, Christmas Bureaus, and non-profit organizations throughout our communities.

As well as, hundreds of hours of volunteer time to cook and deliver meals, hand out toys, decorate Christmas trees, and make Christmas crackers.

I want to thank all our management, staff and customers for your generous donations that are sure to have a positive impact on many this holiday season.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and a very prosperous New Year!!
