Community Leaders: Lance Bennett

December 30th, 2020In the Community

"I really hope you will join me in making a difference and supporting The Food Bank this holiday season."

Lance Bennett
Investment Advisor, Waterloo Branch, RBC Dominion Securities Inc.

Our Community Leaders are generous people and organizations that want to do a little bit more — they go above and beyond to share their resources and connections to feed hungry families, and increase awareness that we’re all in this together.

Our partnership with RBC Dominion Securities began with many staff, including Lance, volunteering to sort food at The Food Bank. It’s been a excellent chance for the employees to see the direct impact their support has in the community where they live and work.

With businesses facing uncertainty and many people finding themselves out of work due to the pandemic, Lance decided to step up in a bigger way. And we are so grateful.

Of course not every donor needs to make such a significant gift. Our partners do a wide range of things — from fundraising to volunteering to donating resources — and each go a long way to helping us do more for the people we serve.

If you are interested in becoming a Community Leader, please reach out to us at: donor@thefoodbank.ca or 519-743-5576.
