Full Cupboard program launches

Envision Financial campaign to collect gifts and food for local families

Envision Financial has launched its Full Cupboard holiday program.

Aimed at easing the season for those in need, the initiative collects gifts and food that are distributed to local families and individuals.

Last year, the effort resulted in more than 1,800 gifts and nearly 6,000 pounds of food.

Anyone wishing to contribute this year can visit any Envision Financial location – in South Surrey, they’re at 1959 152 St. and 3061 152 St. – take a Full Cupboard tag from the Christmas tree and return it with a new and unwrapped gift, food or cash donation by Dec. 13.

On the Semiahmoo Peninsula, the program has partnered with Sources’ White Rock & South Surrey Food Bank and the Salvation Army.

Envision Financial has committed to raising $1 million for B.C. food banks in the next 10 years.
