We were once accused of ‘masking’ a community event as a charitable event for personal gain. I’ve also heard business owners say they don’t want to publicize their charitable contributions. There are circumstances where privacy is due, but my general belief is to the contrary. Business owners are responsible for giving back to the communities that support them and to the world on a larger scale. I also believe that we should talk about it to encourage others to follow suit. And yes, it’s okay to be recognized for leading by example.
We’re passionate about children’s health and education, and there’s nothing more appropriate than ensuring they’re properly fed.
it’s great to know that Halton Food for Thought is providing healthy food and education to fuel the minds and stomachs of a future generation.
Living in Milton, and working in the area, we’re grateful to be able to give back to Halton
In September, The Kormendy Trott Team contributed a portion of real estate sales to Halton Food for Thought. We recently met with Nancy Rumple, Director of Communications and Development for Halton Food for Thought. And, it was enlightening and heartwarming to hear the stories of their organization supporting kids. They’ve had an astoundingly positive impact on children in our community.
Poverty exists in many forms and is often hard to see
At a young age, I had the opportunity to go on a business trip to Nicaragua. While there, we visited several projects where a humanitarian organization worked to help the impoverished. In areas like Nicaragua, poverty and poor living conditions are evident. Sadly, similar conditions exist quietly in our own community.
Whether a busy parent rushes to work without providing adequate food (or any) to their child before school, a family with poor eating habits leaves out essential nutrients from the lunch box, or a family struggling to scrape by has nothing to eat; it’s great to know that Halton Food for Thought is providing healthy food and education to fuel the minds and stomachs of a future generation.
