She is a recent recipient of Rotary’s Paul Harris Fellow award.

Burlington Together is currently assembling Activity Kits that will be distributed through the Burlington Food Bank, Wellington Square and Community Living Burlington.

Martin wanted to add tooth brushes and tooth paste to the package. She is currently looking for donations of toothbrushes and toothpaste, if anyone is able to donate.

The Activity Kits contain art supplies, books, activities for different age groups.

This round the kits will also contain hygiene items: body wash, shampoo and deodorant.

The activity kits are sponsored through a grant with TD Bank allowing them to create 500 kits to share in the community.

While Food is critical to a household – so is finding things for the kids to do when they are not able to get out as much as they would like.

Burlington Together is also planning to kick off GROW A ROW again this Spring. Starting April/May, they are looking to build on the great success this program had last year in sharing fresh produce with the Burlington Food Bank.

We are looking for a volunteer Garden Coordinator for the Burlington Food Bank if you are interested in helping us out, send an email to info@burlingtonfoodbank.ca.
