We are excited to launch our Second Annual Toonies for Tomorrow Campaign, which benefits the Food For Everyone Fund! We know that Surrey is amongst Canada's fastest-growing cities and is expected to become BC's largest city by 2030. It is critical that we build this fund to support the growing and diverse needs of our community. February is the perfect month to launch this campaign, as it is the month we celebrate love. Imagine if every community member shares their love for the community by donating a toonie. We would achieve the goal of $1,228,000 of support for our community!
