MPP Aris Babikian with GlobalMedic volunteers delivering food boxes at Salvation Army Centre in Agincourt, Toronto
Scarborough, May 14 – Scarborough-Agincourt MPP Aris Babikian partnered with GlobalMedic to deliver 650 lbs. of non-perishable food to the Agincourt Salvation Army Food Bank.
The food included barley, rice, green peas, chickpeas, and other non-perishable foods. These healthy and nutritious foods are pantry staples for a cross-section of our community. Our residents will greatly benefit from the donation.
MPP Babikian said: “I would like to express my thanks and heartfelt appreciation to GlobalMedic and the David McAntony Gibson Foundation for their generous donation.
“Throughout these turbulent times, it is heartwarming to see such an initiative in response to the COVID-19 crisis. By supporting our food banks we assist the most vulnerable in our society,” added MPP Babikian.
The donation by GlobalMedic reaffirms the drive by the Ontario Government to mobilize the private sector to partner with the government to help combat the dire consequences of COVID-19. The donation also demonstrates that Ontarians, regardless of background, stand shoulder-to-shoulder, and work together to ensure that Ontarians are cared for.
The Salvation Army Agincourt Community Church is a pillar in our community and has extended a helping hand to many of our residents when they were in need. MPP Babikian has secured this kind donation to help the food bank continue its exemplary work in serving the community. He pledged his commitment to stand by them.
We are grateful to Mr. Arpan Khanna for facilitating the generous donation.
GlobalMedic is affiliated with the David McAntony Gibson Foundation, a registered Canadian charity that has provided disaster relief and life-saving humanitarian aid since 2002.
