Giving back is a big part of our company philosophy at Capital Core Financial. We believe that helping others ignites our spirits and drives us to become better versions of ourselves.
This month we had the opportunity to partner-up with an amazing local organization - A Better Life Foundation. Our team took over the famous “Save on Meats” restaurant located in the Lower Eastside of downtown Vancouver in order to cook and serve food to many local residents living on the streets who never experience a 3 course meal.
Our $5,000 donation provided a hearty 3 course meal for over 160 people that evening, and will continue to provide an additional 1,000 meals throughout the year!
The event, Plenty of Plates was an amazing experience, bringing together our team and some friends, and connecting us with our community in the downtown eastside. We chatted, cooked, cleaned, and served food and non-alcoholic beverages to a lot of hungry people.
While we were able to provide hot meals and a warm space that evening and into the holidays, this is an-ongoing issue for our community in the downtown Eastside. Together we can make a difference. We encourage you all to support this organization. Engage your team, friends, families, and clients - get involved!
Thank you Mark Brand for creating this opportunity, to Evan Sidwell for hosting the evening, to the staff at Save on Meats for their guidance in the kitchen, to Olivia Leigh Nowak for capturing the even on camera, and of course to our support team and friends who joined us for this incredible experience.
