Canadian Armed Forces members at 4 Wing enjoyed a breakfast at the All-Ranks Kitchen on October 28th, while also helping out a charity in need.
The breakfast, hosted on behalf of the 4 Wing Charity Campaign and the Government of Canada Workplace Charity Campaign (GCWCC), saw members enjoy pancakes, bacon, and coffee or juice to start the day for $5, with the proceeds going towards helping the United Way.
“We had a total of 150 people join us for breakfast,” said 4 Wing Wing Personnel Selection Officer (WPSO) SLt Jeremi Pinsonneault. “The breakfast raised a total of $410 for the United Way.”
The United Way is a non-profit that supports a variety of community initiatives, including fighting poverty, helping school-aged children, and supporting communities.
The GCWCC sees federal employees and retirees raising money for a number of charities across Canada. This year’s campaign began back on September 15th and is due to wrap up on December 31st.
“I’d like to thank all of the volunteers who came out to help,” added Pinsonneault. ” And, of course, everyone who ate for a good cause!”
