This month BurlingtonGreen is celebrating the close of the 2019 Grow to Give program by recognizing two of their amazing program leads, Ross Johnson & Darlene Duncan.

Ross and Darlene“Both volunteers have tirelessly committed their time, energy and knowledge to support the Grow to Give program. They were on site every time a new volunteer required orientation, organized tasks and timelines, and got their hands dirty every week caring for the food donation garden, harvesting produce and more.

“We could not have operated this impactful program without these two wonderful team members and we are THRILLED that they will be leaders for the program again next year!”

This year Ross and Darlene were able to donate over 470 lbs (215 kg) of produce to the community, contributing a whopping total of almost 8,000 lbs (3,535 kg) since 2012.

  • God bless Ross and Darlene two of the many who help feed Halton’s hungry families. We have thousands of hungry children and families in Halton and many who care like they do to take on what our local governments continue to ignore is a problem that continues to get worse. .Where would we be if those like them did not step up to the plate, hard to imagine. Thanks to those who will support the Salvation Army Bells which our Mayor is opening tomorrow at 11 at Burlington Mall near Denningers. In this cashless age this is a friendly reminder that you can experience your child or grandchild getting excited at putting something in the kettle and perhaps ringing the bells if they so wish.
