Syrian Refugee Grocery Program:

When the Canadian government sponsored a large number of Syrian refugees we got involved in the peel region with these families by piloting a Syrian refugee grocery program to over 60 families. We raised funds and provided personal service to these families who spoke no English and were brand new to Canada. We escorted them to various Arabic-speaking grocery stores where we provided money for them to purchase their groceries. This gesture was greatly appreciated. Subsequently, we organized a function to honour our donors and Refugee families and had an impactful entertainment program where many VIP dignitaries were invited. Dipika Damerla the Ontario Minister of senior affairs and Michael Palleschi the Regional councillor Brampton were among the many prominent voices in attendance. Syrian families were acknowledged as newly integrated Canadians and a delicious dinner was served in addition to speeches.
