Raymond James Ltd.'s Calgary Branch hosts a Community Dinner: Feed the Hungry
Since 2008, Raymond James Ltd.'s Calgary Branch has replaced their annual Client Party, with something extra special: a community dinner sponsorship. The branch has been hosting a Feed the Hungry Sunday sit-down supper for six years running and in January 2015 they served over 750 meals to 458 guests!
The success of the Feed the Hungry program takes more than 100 volunteers and a weekly sponsorship of $5,000. The Calgary branch employees, family, friends, clients and colleagues in Equity Capital Markets stepped up to supply the manpower needed for the Sunday dinner in January. Volunteers prepped the food, set up the hall, served the four course meal, distributed take-home containers to guests, cleared tables and cleaned-up! There is a lot to do from 9:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m., but the joy it brings to dinner guests is undeniable.
This program, hosted at St. Mary's Hall and Mission gives back to the community in a tremendous way!
