2023 Grand Prize Winner: CityReach Care Society

Meet Gabriel. He came to CityReach in 2021, when his family first arrived in Canada. They were able to receive food support, clothing and school supplies for their 7 children. Since then, Gabriel has joined us as a volunteer at Food For Families and Club Freedom.
“As a volunteer, being part of a Food For Families provides a sense of purpose and fulfillment by helping others in need. Volunteering also provides opportunities to develop new skills, meet new people, and gain a deeper understanding of the needs in our community. As a recipient of support from Food For Families, we have benefitted in many ways. Access to nutritious food helps improve one’s physical health, mental health, and overall well-being. Being part of CityReach, as a volunteer and a recipient, has a positive impact by providing access to nutritious food, fostering community connections, and promoting a sense of purpose and fulfillment.”
Thank you, Gabriel for being part of our team. We are grateful to know you and your beautiful family.
