Hello friends of The Compass! It’s that time of year again! We had so much fun with you at the walk last year and we are getting ready again to Walk the Walk for the Compass 2020. This year things are a little bit different and we will be doing a Virtual walk for the first time considering the crazy time we are living in. COVID-19 may have disrupted our work and life, but it’s not going to stop us from doing what we truly care about.

While we will not be able to meet up in person and walk together, in a virtual walk you could still put on your Compass shirt and walk or run your favourite routes: you can walk by yourself, with your pets, or with friends and family; you can walk outdoors or indoors. The Walk will take place between September 13th and September 19th, 2020.

Last year your donations helped us distribute 486,000 pounds of food, serving over 7000 hot meals and 18,000 snacks! We provided 46 children spaces in day camps and 186 backpacks filled with school supplies. We truly appreciate this amazing community! You help us provide help for today and hope for tomorrow to our clients!

You can sign up for the Walk and register to fundraise online or download a traditional fundraising form. We’d love to see you on our social network. Use #WalkTheWalk2020 and tag us @CompassFoodBank on Twitter.
