Supporting our Community
By Lior Markus
As I am preparing for my bar mitzvah during this challenging time, I’ve been really thinking about how I can continue to contribute to society and Tikkun Olam. I came up with an idea, and I’m so proud that it was executed. The idea was to support small business in my area of regal heights, while at the same time addressing food insecurity. We created a campaign that encouraged customers of Cano to order a curbside takeout meal and to add $5 to their bill. With that donation, Cano would then cook a hot fresh meal, which we would then deliver to The Stop Community Food Centre. We’re targeting 250 meals, and I am confident that we will achieve it. Now more than ever, it’s extremely important that we all try to help those in need of food and necessities. It would be wonderful if we can figure out a way how to turn this into a longer-term initiative to support our community.
