RBC Day of Service grants are awarded through teams of RBC employees who volunteer outside of work hours during Volunteer month of April.
Our Hope with Wheels program was awarded a $1000.00 grant this year after a 6 member team from RBC College Street joined our Hope with Wheels team last Tuesday evening to serve the homeless on the streets of Toronto. They served hot chili, sandwiches, water, and provided sleeping bags and survival kits to those who needed help.
The grant will be used to buy new socks, underwear, sleeping bags and survival kits for our Hope With Wheels program.
Briar Crawford, who organized the RBC team commented:
“it was a pleasure to be a part of helping provide relief to the homeless on the street, and a real eye-opener for our team.”
