It has been a great month over here at BB4CK getting up and running for the school year. We have made a ton of great new partnerships and learned about some exciting new city programs. Please check out these news articles.
An awesome fundraiser from SPUD.ca raised $6,000 and helped feed 6,000 Calgary Kids.
We have so many wonderful Calgarians offering to donate food we unfortunately can’t use because of logistics. Here’s an awesome program will get this food where it is needed.

When the 2013 floods hit our city the BB4CK staff immediately wanted to help. Our team quickly got in touch with all schools affected, 211, and Neighbourlink to ensure any families struggling to access food due to displacement, school closures, or power outages knew we were there to help.
During the crisis we helped to support 203 kids struggling due to the floods. Over $20 000 was donated to these families to make sure these kids had the food they need to be as successful as possible.
The team also volunteered throughout the beginning weeks with Neighbourlink to help manage their donations and feed the volunteers. It was amazing to see the city come together throughout this time and we are happy we could take part. The resiliency of the families we met throughout the floods was awe inspiring.
While we hope to never witness such devastation in our city again it is heart warming to know that Calgarians will always be there to give one another a hand up.
