From Justin Beach and Publicbroadcasting.ca:
While the mechanism still isn't in place for auto-withdrawals or online donations I've set up a facebook group called $5 For the Parkdale Food Bank. The purpose of the group is to gather people who would be willing to make a $5/month donation (via bank account or credit card) to the food bank.
$5 may not seem like much but 500 people donating $5 a month would put the food bank close to it's annual operating budget of $33,000. The goal is to find 1,000 people and significantly increase the food banks budget.
Benjamin Mueller-Heaslip of the Parkdale Revolutionary Orchestra is also trying to organize some last minute fundraisers. More details on that will be posted as they become available.
The Parkdale Food Bank currently feeds 600 families and will close in January without help. Please contribute in any way you can.
If you'd like to simply mail a cheque you can send it to ST. FRANCIS TABLE, 1322 Queen Street West, Toronto Ontario, M6K 1L4
If you're willing to make monthly donations join the Facebook Group and we'll let you know when the mechanisms are in place.
If you'd like to participate in a fundraiser please contact Benjamin Mueller-Heaslip at email@example.com
