In the spirit of giving back to the community, CPA NL is launching our 6th annual Multiplying Kindness Campaign. To maximize the impact of the campaign, we have decided to choose one charitable organization as the campaign recipient, and we will rotate the chosen charity each year.
With news reports continually emphasizing the increase in food bank usage and seeing the impact rising food prices are having on us all, this year we have chosen Bridges to Hope as our campaign recipient. Bridges to Hope offers support to anyone requiring emergency food aid with client’s all over the Northeast Avalon region. Bridges to Hope focuses on Neighbours feeding Neighbours and strives to ensure that the diverse members of our community have fair and unbiased access to food, while also acting as advocates for increased food security.
In addition to collecting donations from our members, on December 8th the CPA NL Board and staff will be partnering with Bridges to Hope to volunteer time and resources to prepare fresh meals to be included in the food hampers distributed to clients.
There are three ways you can help!
We are holding two Christmas Socials this year. One in St. John’s and the other in Corner Brook.
