With the down turn in the economy, even more families are finding it hard to make ends meet. The winter months are especially hard and it’s more important than ever that we extend a helping hand to our neighbours. Most people who receive food from the Vancouver Food Bank Society are working poor – folks who work hard but just can’t make their paychecks stretch far enough; and over 40% of the Food Bank’s clients are children. We at Arts Off Main are trying to do our bit by donating 10% of all sales from February 9th to 14th to the Vancouver Food Bank Society.
You can also help in our quest to feed the hungry by dropping by Arts off Main with a donation of non-perishable food; buy some Valentine’s cookies or make a cash donation. Of course you could always buy some art, too!
Every dollar that goes to the Food Bank translates into $3.00 worth of buying power at the wholesalers so they can buy fresh vegetables and perishable food.
We hope that you can help us make this event a huge success.
Nicola Morgan has created miniature original paintings each packaged in its own sheer red bag. She calls them "Love Bytes" and they're priced at only $20! Why give a card when you can give a byte? Valentine's cards by Eileen Mosca and Ellen Scobie are in the gallery too. View online at flickr.com
