A Richmond non-profit is making a call for volunteers who enjoy the idea of picking fruits, making new friends and helping a great cause all in one event.
Success’ Richmond location, an organization aimed to assist and empower immigrants at all stages of their life in Canada, is launching a fruit picking event with (fruit?) donations benefiting Urban Bounty, formerly known as Richmond Food Security Society, on Sept. 18.
Queenie Choo, CEO of Success, said the event is part of a series of free programs led by the non-profit, and aims to help immigrants integrate into Canadian society while doing meaningful activities.
“Volunteers who have fruit trees on their property and cannot use the entire crop are encouraged to pick the excess fruits and donate them to Urban Bounty. For property owners who need extra help with the process of fruit gleaning, please feel free to contact us and we will arrange volunteers for a quick visit,” said Choo.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun. Meanwhile, you are also helping out people in need by donating high-quality and delicious fruit.”
She added that refugees, newcomers and live-in caregivers are encouraged to join this event.
An online registration form will be required to fill out before participating in the program.
