Spring is in the air, and with it comes another wave of generosity through our annual Spring Hope Food Drive! 

From April 10 – 24, we will be collecting items in Skyline Living communities across the country to support local food banks. We will be matching donations at $1 per pound/$1 donated! 

Tenants can use this link to donate directly to Food Banks Canada.

  • 1 in 3 food bank users in Canada are children. 

  • The number of food bank visits in March 2023 marked a 37% increase from the previous year and an 84% rise from March 2019.
