Until our move in 2022, RCG was long-standing neighbours with the Richmond Food Bank, often witnessing first-hand the vast lineups of locals waiting for assistance. With the noticeable uptick in food insecurity, RCG organized a March food drive inviting 30 of our tenants to join us! Our staff were excited to contribute & gave generously (encouraged by the Food Bank-provided list of most-needed items).
A few tenants not only filled their entire boxes but filled multiple boxes. A very proud shout-out to Earth Child Montessori School, Thompson Community Services, San Marino Furniture & RONA for being a shining example of generosity and spirit, encouraging their staff (and customers) to help. What’s even more amazing? The total weight of all donations measured in at nearly 500 lbs! Thanks to all tenants who participated. We’re so pleased with the outcome and look forward to doing it again in the future to help the wonderful Richmond community.
