CALGARY'S TECH COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER TO GIVE BACK TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
Since 2010, YYC Tech Gives has donated over $1.5 million, which translates to over $7.5 million worth of food in the hands of Calgarians in need.
THE CALGARY FOOD BANK
We chose to support The Calgary Food Bank because it is a local organization that provides a big uplift to their clients. In the past year, the Calgary Food Bank has donated 9,139,114 lbs of food, which is 9,786 meals Every Day for those in need.
Each year, YYCTech Gives members plan various fundraisers and events to raise money for the Calgary Food Bank. Our annual Volunteer event, the Spam Cup, is a friendly food sorting competition at the Food Bank's Warehouse with the CBC EyeOpener broadcasting live.
