PFM Executive Search strives to make an impact at the community level by supporting a diversity of organizations that make a difference. In December 2019, as part of our Winter/Christmas Social Impact Initiative, PFM was excited to volunteer at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB) warehouse in Burnaby.
GVFB’s Vision is “Accessible, healthy and sustainable food for all.” They focus on sharing food (bought and donated) to those in need all throughout the year but they are especially busy during the Christmas period.
We all know that Christmas can be a very difficult and challenging time for many. To help spread some Christmas cheer and contribute to the spirit of giving, PFM Staff spent an afternoon sorting through large volumes of fresh produce, canned goods, pastas, etc. at the GVFB warehouse, to be shipped out shortly to their hubs for distribution to those in need. It was amazing to see the sheer volume of food that they manage and it was impressive to see their operations.
PFM was delighted to volunteer at the GVFB warehouse helping to sort through food and in turn getting this out to the community in a timely manner before Christmas. We wish everyone at the GVFB a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy new Year!
The GVFB always appreciates new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with the GVFB, please go to https://foodbank.bc.ca/get-involved/about-volunteering/
