CALGARY, Dec. 6, 2017 /CNW/ - Collins Barrow Calgary is proud to announce a fundraising initiative in partnership with Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids (BB4CK) that aims to raise funds to support BB4CK's mandate of providing free, healthy lunches to children who would otherwise go hungry.
To support this valuable organization, Collins Barrow Calgary is asking Calgarians to purchase a $5 lunch and "eat like a kid." Simply place an order before the event on Jan. 5, 2018 to receive a healthy lunch prepared by local post-secondary students and the staff at CB Calgary on Jan. 12. Lunches can be delivered to offices within the downtown Calgary core or picked up at the University of Calgary downtown campus, where a lunch-preparation station will be set up. All proceeds from this initiative go directly to BB4CK. Orders can be placed here.
"We have great respect and admiration for the work done by Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids," said Dean Woodward, managing partner, Collins Barrow Calgary. "This new program is an opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause, one that directly benefits our community and aligns with our firm's guiding principles. Collins Barrow is proud to partner with like-minded organizations on socially responsible initiatives and those that inspire community engagement. This is the CB Life, and we love to live it."
BB4CK is a registered charity that provides free, healthy lunches to kids in Calgary schools throughout the school week. Working with school staff, community groups and businesses like Collins Barrow, BB4CK provides approximately 3,800 lunches per day to kids across Calgary.
