Synergy North gives Support to the Regional Food Distribution Association
Synergy North has made a $10,000 donation to the Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA), to provide support to its communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The donation will be directed towards buying and distributing food during this time of increased need.
“Synergy North is pleased to respond to the needs of our communities. Now is the time to be thinking about others and while we aim to give back year-round, during this unprecedented period we all need to find ways to help.” says Robert Mace, President, and CEO of Synergy North; “It is important to recognize that we all have the ability to donate our time and resources to be part of neighbours helping neighbours.”
RFDA food banks and feeding programs provide support to over 13,000 people in our region each month, this demand has increased significantly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. More people are finding that they do not have the funds to put food on the table and are turning to their local food banks for help.
“Since the start of COVID-19, the region’s need for support from the RFDA has amplified and will only continue to grow in the months ahead,” said Volker Kromm, RFDA’s Executive Director. “These are hard circumstances for everyone across Northwestern Ontario, but with the care from community partners like Synergy North, we will continue to help those who need us.”
