OrganiGiving: Giving a meaning to the word ‘Community’
The Organika Team
On January 11th, the Organika team joined together on an important mission: OrganiGiving, our annual volunteering expedition to the Downtown Eastside, an often misunderstood part of our Vancouver community. OrganiGiving has been an important tradition for the Organika family since it began, five years ago. It’s a time to give back and reflect on what it really means to be part of a community. The big day is in January, but our preparations for OrganiGiving begin in the summer. Our entire team spends months collecting funds and donations - this year, we were able to collect an incredible 120 kg of clothing for donation, as well as the funds to prepare over 400 sandwiches!
