tn IMG 5073Food4Kids provides healthy nutrition packages to over 1,200 young students in Hamilton for every weekend of the school year.  For most of these children, this weekend nutrition will be the only food they have access to during each weekend.  In addition to the weekend program, Food4Kids also has a summer program for those who need it.  Food4Kids cannot accomplish all the good they do without the support of volunteers and the HPFFA is incredibly proud to be able to continually support Food4Kids with volunteer help, fundraisers and donations.

On March 28, HPFFA members assisted with one of the weekly food packs.  We were also able to make a donation of $1,000 to help this incredible cause. For the complete photo gallery of the day, click here.

Food4Kids still has hundreds of youth on the waitlist.  For complete details on Food4Kids and how you can help, please click here - FOOD4KIDS

The Hamilton Professional Fire Fighter’s Association (HPFFA), Local 288 partnered with Canadian Blood Services over this past March Break and adopted the Hamilton blood donor clinic in Ancaster.  The HPFFA committed to recruit new donors and fill appointments to help collect 100 donations over March Break at the clinic.

Everyone who registered their donation was entered into a draw for a $300 Lowes gift card.  In addition, those individuals who connected on social media using #hamFFgiveblood also received extra ballots.  And the winner of the gift card is....Megan Batchelor!  Congratulations!

Thank you to all who took the time to donate.  You may have just saved a life!
