The 17th Annual Walk The Walk For The Compass
An Incredible Success!
On Saturday September 16th, 2023 the community came together at the Church of St. Mark – Lutheran in Mineola Mississauga to take part in the 17th Annual Walk The Walk for The Compass Food Bank and Outreach Centre.
With a goal of raising $85,000 to purchase healthy and nutritious food and hygiene products for residents of south Mississauga experiencing food insecurity and homelessness, we were ecstatic when we saw that our goal had been surpassed several days before the event took place. Based on quick calculations, we are confident in sharing with you that you raised more than $120,000 for The Compass. Once we complete a full financial review of all funds that came in, we will share with you our true final number. There’s still time to donate to the event through our website at https://thecompass.ca/walk until end of day September 30th.
We would like to thank all of our Walk sponsors for their incredible support of this annual event:
