As the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the world and Canada, Potentia finds itself in a fortunate position of operating effectively despite the obvious limitations and challenges that all businesses are facing today.
Potentia’s most recent Corporate Social Responsibility initiative consists in a $30,000 donation divided between 2 charities that are providing community and frontline workers support during the COVID-19 crisis. Daily Bread Food Bank has received $15,500 and Feed the Front Lines received the balance on $14,500.
Daily Bread Food Bank focuses on providing the best food and services to low-income families across Toronto and the GTA. The charity supports 66 food banks, 135 member agencies, 10 tenant programs, 9 breakfast programs, 5 prenatal programs, 73 meal programs and 9 snack programs, all while feeding up to 5,000 people per week. During this time of strain and stress, Daily Bread Food Bank is helping alleviate the challenges faced by those experiencing hunger and poverty daily and ensuring uninterrupted food delivery to those in need.
Feed the Frontlines is a fundraiser created in response to the current crisis, that provides meals to frontline health care workers, social services staff, and Torontonians facing food insecurity. Hot lunches and dinners are provided to emergency departments and medical teams at Mount Sinai, Bridgepoint, St. Michael’s, North York General, Michael Garron, Scarborough General, St. Joseph’s and Sunnybrook Hospitals, staff teams at Kensington Gardens Long Term and Hospice Care, and to the frontline workers at Fife House, Sistering, Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre, Covenant House and Fred Victor Centre, organizations that help people who are homeless and/or marginally housed.
