|Gordon Food Service is committed on a national level to a partnership with Habitat for Humanity. This initiative began in 2011 and since then we have raised over $1.3 Million dollars to support 11 Habitat homes across Canada.
To date, Edmonton has raised over $150,000, and we were excited to present keys to deserving Habitat families on August 29, 2013, and October 29, 2015.
The purpose of our Walk is to raise funds towards building more Habitat homes. The Walk is a “family themed” event that, as Habitat would say, is in the spirit of neighbour helping neighbour. We are holding a 3 km walk that will be followed by a family BBQ (hamburgers, hot dogs, assorted snacks and refreshments served). There will be music and a silent auction as well as bouncy castles, outdoor fun games, and face-painting for the kids. There will also be axe-throwing for teens and adults!
Please note that Habitat for Humanity Canada will issue tax receipts for this event.
