Lotus Light’s Children Assistance Plan Donates Powdered Milk to Support Students from Low-Income Families
According to a recent report published by Campaign 2000, a coalition of children advocated groups, over 1.3 million or 17.7% of children in Canada live below the poverty line. It is difficult to understate the seriousness of this situation, especially given the lifelong impact that poverty has on children, as well as the economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This week, Lotus Light donated a big pallet of powdered milk and a large number of gift cards to support students from low-income families and Indigenous communities. With the support of our community partner, Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen, volunteers delivered the donations to Britannia Elementary School, Grandview Elementary School, Thunderbird Elementary School, Gladstone Secondary School, John Oliver Secondary School, and Aboriginal Front Door Society.
During the 2021 Winter Charity Drive event, Lotus Light had launched its “Children Assistance Plan” with the goal of delivering food, household necessities, and gift cards to inner-city schools in order to support children from low-income families.
“I love the powdered milk, and it will be helpful for many of our families. Thank you again for your support of Grandview. We are grateful for your kindness to us,” said Donna Mah, neighborhood assistant at Grandview Elementary.
Lotus Light Charity Society relies on the generosity and support of corporate and individual sponsors, as well as our community partner organizations, to provide monetary and in-kind donations to support Lotus Light’s various programs and initiatives that help those in need in our community.
