Giving Tuesday 2021


Happy #GivingTuesday2021! Starting today through the next week, YOUR GIFT DOUBLES thanks to Flaman! Can we count on your support? 
Many autistic individuals are experiencing a new kind of vulnerability - food insecurity. The pandemic has harmed the poor and vulnerable the most, and it is threatening to push hundreds of Edmontonians deeper into poverty. We need to ensure they do not fall through the cracks. Our Pantry Food Program visits went up by 80% over the past 12 months, and we keep getting hamper requests from new members weekly. This program is specifically designed for autistic people for whom visiting a regular Food Bank is too overwhelming and not accessible. Besides addressing the immediate need for food security, our team helps members resolve challenges by connecting them to relevant resources.
To be able to assist everyone who needs help, we need your support.
Big or small, every gift makes a difference. We also are excited to announce that Flaman will be matching our Giving Tuesday donations, up to $10,000 in total. This means that the impact of your contribution will be multiplied so that more people can get the help they need.
