Help us feeding families in need for the holidays!
Would you like to help us feed families in need, right in your community, this holiday season? Take the challenge with us!
Eden West Gourmet has been a proud sponsor of Tricities Mum Group (TCMG) for the past 4 years. TCMG is a group of local mums, (13,000 of them) all helping each other through a Facebook Group, since 2012. The sponsors of the group are dedicated to help families in need by purchasing, collecting, and delivering everyday necessities, and mostly food, to local families in need.
Feel free to join us on Facebook! Search for Tricities Mum Group (conditions to join: being a mum, leave in the Tricities) or just help through us!
The challenge for the holiday season is to provide as many meals as possible, so we created a reverse holiday calendar of things to get for the hampers that will be delivered in December! See picture below for the list of things we are trying to gather.
As an incentive to help EWG help those families, we will offer you a box of Gone Crackers of your choice, every time you drop off at least 3 items from this list at the store, or if you give a unwrapped new toy!*
As an alternative, we are continuously raising founds to also purchase gift cards for those families. If you want to send money or provide a gift card, please contact Valentine directly.
Thank you for reading through and giving this initiative come consideration, as this cause is really close to our hearts!
The TCMG Tri Cities Mom's Group is a place for local Moms from Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, and Burnaby to give and receive support. TCMG is one of largest moms group in North America and operates as an online positive meeting place where over 12,000 women connect, bond, and support each other on the journey of Motherhood. Being a Mom is such an amazing and crazy adventure; but it can also be the biggest struggle of our lives. As women and mothers we should never feel alone; rather feel supported, connected, and empowered.
The outreach of TCMG stretches far beyond the boundaries of the onscreen community, we support families with emergency food hampers, clothing, school supplies, holiday help, diapers, and formula. Our team of volunteers is constantly working on fundraising with the main goal of being able support families in need.
*only one box of crackers offered per visit and per family, no matter how many items donated, with a minimum of 3 food items from the list or one or more toys, new and not wrapped with gift wrap.
