Car2Go, Scotiabank…and Five Hole for Food?

13 cities. 19 days. 133,000 pounds of food raised for local food banks.

Our success in 2012 could not have been achieved without the support from our corporate sponsors, partners and devoted volunteers. After a brief pause, Five Hole for Food is ready to drive full-speed ahead in advance of next year’s tour. Naturally, we want to make 2013 bigger and better than ever.

Two new opportunities have fallen on our laps; ones that would drastically help us increase efforts, amplify our message and raise even more for local food banks. And you can help.

Car2Go is looking for a brand new organization to support in 2013. This local car-share program collects member shares from every registrant on a yearly basis, which are then donated to a local organization. Last year, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice was the recipient; this year, we want to be that selected organization. That’s $30,000 that could help us fuel next year’s tour across the country, playing hockey and raising food for local food banks.

How can you help?
If you’re a member of Car2Go, please email with the subject line “Charity” and “Five Hole for Food” in the body. Voila. One vote for us.

Scotiabank is looking for Game Changers - individuals who have demonstrated leadership as ‘difference makers’ in their communities – and our Founder, Richard Loat, has been nominated for just that. If we can propel Richard into the top spot as a National Game Changer, that’s $100,000 that could provide us with even more fuel for next year’s tour.

We couldn’t do what we do without the online and offline support. From us to you, thank you.
