FOLLOW THE MONEY
Alltrue aims to help those most impacted by COVID-19. Funds raised from raffles will go toward four lower mainland food banks. Funds raised through auctions will go toward purchasing groceries for high-risk seniors in partnership with local long term care homes.
At least 80% of your raffle ticket or final bid goes directly to the charitable causes. The remaining funds help us run this site and secure great prizes for you to win, but no money is held for profit.
More about the food banks:
Setup to provide temporary relief to the hunger crisis in 1983, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank now provides assistance to 8,500 people weekly, across Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, and the North Shore. 25% of their clients are children & youth, and 22% are seniors.
The Surrey Food Bank provides food to families living in Surrey and North Delta. Surrey Food Bank takes pride that they "Invite, Inform, Involve and Inspire” the community and take responsibility to connect our clients to other community services as a means of helping them become self-sufficient.
Founded in 1983, The Richmond Food Bank served 20 families on its first day. The organization now serves 2,200 people a week and is a dynamic hub that connects people, food, and services that are essential to health and well-being, with a mission to be a caring organization that provides food assistance, advocacy, and related support for community members in need.
Abbotsford Food Bank doesn't just do food distribution. In partnership with Archway community services they are able to offer guests free dental care at their on-site clinic, kids’ summer camps, seasonal fresh produce, special Christmas Hampers, and other exciting programs.
More about purchasing groceries for high-risk seniors: In addition to giving to important causes, Alltrue looks to take action ourselves, spending the time to go out and help those who are at a high risk of infection get supplies they need. We do this in partnership with local long-term care homes, responding to their requests for what help they require the most.
