Each year, the team at Advantage2Retail renews its commitment to helping out in our community.
A2R donates funds to two very worthy causes that seek to combat homelessness and at-risk youth through meals, shelter, psychosocial counseling, medical aid and most of all, their care and support.
This past Saturday marked A2R’s third visit to the Old Brewery Mission to volunteer our time and help to serve meals with respect to the hundreds of men and women who line up at the doors in the snowy cold every day.
Changes this year to the Supper Experience Program had our team spread out through the kitchen and cafeteria, cooking and serving food, clearing tables and cleaning dishes. Though only a few hours, we have a renewed respect for the hard working men and women of the Mission who do this daily.
Since 1889, the Old Brewery Mission supports over 4,000 homeless men and women by providing meals, shelter, medical and psychological aid to provide immediate support, but also to help them rebuild their lives.
