On behalf of Atira Women's Resource Society
and the many women of the Downtown Eastside who attended the Atira New Year's dinner, we would like to thank you for your generous support. Your donation helped to make the event a success and was much appreciated by the guests.
With the help of donations such as yours, Atira was able to put together a holiday meal with all the trimmings, gift bags, and free, on-site beauty treatments for all of the women in attendance. It was a truly uplifting evening of healing and community-building.

For over 10 years,
Quest Outreach Society has been a community partner of Small Potatoes Urban Delivery (spud!). spud! is an online home grocer where customers place their order at www.spud.ca and have fresh organic and all-natural groceries delivered to their home or office.
Quest is a vital part of our business model because they are able to effectively help us redistribute our surplus food items, approx. 50 tons of food waste per year, to those in need.
Unlike food banks, Quest has the capacity to provide pick-up service and is able to visit our warehouse on a weekly basis to collect our surplus items including perishable foods such as milk, bread and produce.
Our ongoing partnership with Quest helps us demonstrate to our customers that we are reducing our food waste as much as possible and that we're providing support to disadvantaged individuals in our community. As an added bonus, our business also receives an tax-donation for the value of our items.
It's nice to know that
when funds are really low, there is some place that cares about members of the community MORE than they care about prestige or profit. Thanks Quest! I haven't had to use you more than a few times, but when I did, I was so thankful. I try not to go there if I don't need to, so that others with greater needs can get what they need, when they need it.,
Feel free to submit feedback regarding your experience with Quest.
