The 16th Annual Walk The Walk For The Compass 

Saturday September 17th, 2022.  

…and what a Walk it was!

Saturday September 17th, 2022 is in the books, but the wonderful memories will remain forever in pictures, in feelings and in heart. All of us at The Compass Food Bank & Outreach Centre are so grateful to everyone who participated in anyway. 

To everyone who came out to Walk The Walk on that beautiful Saturday morning, we thank you for your commitment to making south Mississauga a place where people experiencing homelessness  and food insecurity know they are welcome and supported at The Compass. 

To our event sponsors, AtlasCare, Anuja Periera Real Estate, Fielding Environmental, Petro Canada Lubricants, Tile Solutions and Vulcan Investments – THANK YOU. 

Thank you to Michael’s Back Door and My Secret Kitchen for donating the delicious pasta salad and potato salad that accompanied a delicious BBQ of hamburgers, hot dogs, both meat and meatless, cooked by The Knights of Columbus from St. Christopher’s Roman Catholic Church. To Metro, Loblaws and Longo’s who donated gift cards to help us purchase food, thank you. 

Thank you to the many companies and community members who donated prizes to our very successful and first ever Online Silent Auction. You rock!

A huge thank you to the Pastor Jeff and the Church of St. Mark’s – Lutheran located at 130 Mineola Rd East in Mississauga for donating your beautiful property, church, tents and volunteers who helped set up the tents the night before and take them down the day of. 

Thank you to the SMFX group (South Mississauga Free Exchange) for holding their Halloween Costume and Decor Free Exchange and also a seed exchange in support of The Compass. 

Thank you Camelot 101 and to the band who played music while we enjoyed the event and to NPEMA Medical Services who provided first-aid both onsite and along the routes.

Thank you to Mayor Bonnie Crombie, MPP Rudy Cuzzetto, Ward 1 Councillor Stephen Dasko and Ward 2 Councillor Pat Mullin and Silvia Gualtieri who all attended The Walk along with our treasured Peel Police

Finally, to all the incredible volunteers who signed up to help make this event possible – a million thank you’s. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. 

To anyone we should also be thanking, but haven’t yet, we will be in the days to come.

Stay tuned for more updates as we have them. This year’s event was an overwhelming success. 

Thank You!
